The aim of this paper is to present an assessment of the importance of how and what are the actual results after the higher education institutions have had designed the credits system in direct relations with their own characteristics. Also is important to identify and analyze how are the effects after the ultimate design of students guides and if those effects are bringing with them better feedback in terms of increasing number of cohorts of students. With this research paper we intend to make an overview of the results after this changes (re-design the curriculum, ECTS credit system, new learning modules, better, flexible and comprehensive students guides) making the institutions more close to excellence in education and get ready for the ECTS & DS Labels – awarded by the European Commission. All of those institutional changes can be measured in the final stage by an very actual indicator like the attainment and completion rates as well as by the labor market prospects of graduates.
