MRU awarded a ECTS Label

The festive ceremony took place at the Seimas during a confererence, „Europe’s Citizen.”

„This Label is a sign of recognition of an institution that fosters internationality,” said the Education Exchange Support Foundation’s Director Daiva Šutinytė.

MRU Rector Prof. Pumputis, in receiving the Label, noted that although it is not truly fully recognized in Lithuania, the ECTS label opens doors for the University in Europe and the world, as „it is one of the most important signs attesting to a high quality of studies“.
