Institutional audit on educational quality assurance
At the end of 2019, a second institutional audit on educational quality assurance will be carried out at the University of Twente. In 2014, UT received a positive assessment from the NVAO, the accreditation organization of the Netherlands and Flanders. Within six years a reassessment based on a general evaluation framework is necessary for a renewal.
A panel of higher education experts is scheduled to visit the University of Twente on November 11 and 12 and December 16, 17 and 18, 2019 to determine if the university’s educational activities are in compliance with the quality requirements specified by the NVAO. During these days, the panel will meet with delegation of staff, students and stakeholders from various levels of the university.
On the last day, the panel will assess the plan on the quality agreements in education, that will be agreed with the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW) in response to the sector agreement on investing in the quality of education.
