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.


NVAO was established in 2005 by Treaty between the Netherlands and Flanders. The responsibilities of NVAO have been set down in law. The NVAO office is located in The Hague, the Netherlands. 


The General Board of NVAO addresses the strategic policy pursued by the organisation. The day-to-day management of the organisation has been mandated to the Executive Board and the Management Team.


NVAO strives for a motivated and expert team and is therefore constantly looking for quality employees. View our current vacancies or apply spontaneously.
