European Diploma Supplement Label
In December 2012, UCL was granted the European Diploma Supplement Label, an EU-approved supplement for the students’ graduating diploma. This recognition makes it easier for UCL graduates to get a job abroad.
The Diploma Supplement Label indicates which competences students achieve during their studies using an international standard. Moreover, an objective explanation of their grades is included.
The Diploma Supplement describes in English the purpose, content, extent and level of the study program that the student has graduated from. Furthermore, it contains information about which types of jobs are compatible with such graduates, a description of University College Lillebaelt and a general description of the Danish education system.
All in all, students who obtain the Diploma Supplement Label will thereby have better access to studying and working abroad.
