Specification of Additional Criteria for Research Masters, 30 May 2016
Guidelines for assessment of research masters programmes to go into effect on 1 September 2015, 23 April 2015

Since 1 January 2017 the 'Specification of additional criteria for research master’s programmes, 30 May 2016' is effective. There are the following transitional arrangements:

  • reviews that lead to a report before 1 January 2017: treatment according to the old guidelines (2015);
  • for proposals for panel compositions for reviews of research master's (even if they are part of a visitation group with regular programmes) finalize after 1 January 2017: treatment according to the new criteria (2016);
  • when preparing an assessment that will be completed after 1 January 2017 already so far advanced that applying the new criteria leads to unreasonable harm, NVAO may decide to 1 July 2017 at the request of the institution treatment will be according to the old guidelines (2015).
