The Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO) has been established by the Dutch and Flemish governments as an independent accreditation body. NVAO operates on both a binational and international level. The NVAO conclusions underpin the recognition of higher education programmes and ensure that students receive worthy degrees.About NVAO
The Netherlands and Flanders each have their own quality assurance system, an integrated system for external quality assurance. A quality assurance system includes the various procedures and conditions for obtaining accreditation. All NVAO procedures are based on assessment frameworks.
The Flemish Minister for Education launched a new version of the online white list of all recognised higher education institutions and programmes in Flanders. The updated and more accessible Higher Education Register is developed in close cooperation with the NVAO.
From today, the English version of our new website is online. We no longer use a separate website for our English-speaking users. The English version of the pages are integrated in the general website. This way a user can easily switch languages on every page. Our new website will quickly guide junior as well as more experienced quality assurance officers through the quality assurance systems and procedures. The website is a joint project of NVAO and everyone involved in the quality of higher education. Any suggestions to improve our website are more than welcome.Read more
