Quality assurance


The Bachelor's and Master's programmes of Humanistic Studies have been assessed by QANU (Quality Care of Dutch Universities). In all areas, the programmes were assessed as 'sufficient' or 'good'. Based on these positive assessments, NVAO (Accreditation Organization of the Netherlands and Flanders) has formally accredited the programmes. The Master's programme of  Care Ethics and Policies, originally set up by Tilburg University and transferred to the University for Humanistic Studies in 2013, was initially accredited by NVAO in 2012. For all three programmes, the accreditation lasts until 01-07-2020.
