Basic information


National External Quality Assurance Requirements

  • French Community - Programme evaluations
    address 1st (bachelor) and 2nd cycle (master) degrees. Institutions of higher education are required to ensure their own quality management and assurance and to take measures for an effective internal self‐evaluation (Article 9, Decree of 31 March 2004 & Article 9 of the Decree of 7 November 2013). While the institutions go through a periodic programme evaluation, the results of assessments have no formal impact in terms of financing or accreditation of higher education institutions. Private higher education establishment are not recognised by the legal framework of the French Community of Belgium
  • Flemish Community - Institutional review and programme accreditation
    University colleges and universities require an institutional review and they have to organize the assessment of the quality of their programmes. Other higher education institutions require programme accreditation. For all new programmes an initial accreditation and a first accreditation by NVAO is mandatory. Only education providers included in the Flemish Higher Education Register can award legally recognised degrees. Programme accreditation is still required for the delivery of new programmes or for programmes with a limited period of accreditation (the ‘Codex Hoger Onderwijs’ 2013).
