Accreditation of programmes at Wittenborg University

Shift from Programme Accreditation to Institutional Accreditation for Dutch Universities

If it is up to the Dutch Ministry of Education, the Netherlands will overhaul its accreditation system for universities by 2024 with the focus on more self-regulation of programmes. Currently, the Dutch Flemish Accreditation Organisation (NVAO) accredits all programmes at institutes of higher education – whether public or private like Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences. The plan is now to shift from programme accreditation, which is done every 6 years by NVAO, to institutional accreditation.
