International assessments

Internationalisation plays a major role in the structure and assessment of education. For that reason NQA closely follows developments abroad and is also active overseas, in various countries including Curaçao and Saint-Martin, Vietnam, Flanders and Switzerland.

It is possible to compile international panels and so make comparisons with foreign study programmes. Regularly audit visits in The Netherlands are conducted entirely in English. The contacts NQA maintains with foreign institutes for audits and assessment, can help study programmes gain recognition abroad. For example, thanks to NQA’s collaboration with the German Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation (FIBAA), various Dutch master study programmes have acquired Dutch and German accreditation.
