What is your study programme?

Your feedback enables us to improve the curriculum every year, so it is very important that you continue to fill in evaluations and tell us how you feel about the curriculum.

Course evaluations

At the end of the course you fill in an evaluation form. You are asked, for example, what you think of the design of the course, the teaching methods, how much you have learned, the assessment and the knowledge and skills of the lecturer. You can also use the form to make suggestions for the lecturer or to share your experiences. Read more about the evaluations.

At the end of the course you receive feedback on the results of the questionnaire via Canvas. This report contains the outcomes of the evaluation and how they will be used. This gives you insight into what is done with the feedback you have provided. You can see this report three months after the end of the course on the Canvas page of the course in question.

Programme Committee

You can also give feedback about your degree programme via the Programme Committee. The Programme Committee gives solicited and unsolicited advice to the College/Graduate School Director of the degree programme. If you have any ideas, complaints or suggestions for improvement for your degree programme, you can contact the Programme Committee.

Accreditation

Every six years, the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO)External link evaluates the Bachelor’s programmes for re-accreditation by the Central Register of Higher Education Study Programmes (CROHOExternal link, in Dutch). You can read the assessment reports for the degree programmes on the NVAO websiteExternal link.
