High-quality programmes = best chance on the labour market
University College UCLL is known for the quality of its programmes. It is thus clear that we put a great deal of effort into both quality improvement and quality control. The following principles are key in this respect:
- An appreciative culture of quality assurance throughout the organisation
- Systematic and structural quality improvement
- Stimulation of a critical attitude amongst students, personnel, alumni and professionals
- Continuous input of an independent external critical view
Continuous quality control and improvement
A few years ago, the NVAO (De Nederlands-Vlaamse Accreditatieorganisatie - Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders) virtually abolished the external review committees. Henceforth, each institution decided for itself how quality was controlled. Thus, UCLL devised its own, new system with, amongst other elements, dialogue committees with educational and professional experts. They also systematically asked external experts to examine specific themes, like the interconnecting of education, research and services.
