European Approach

Are you looking for a partner to review your international joint programme? VLUHR QA carries out reviews according to the European Approach for Quality Assurance of Joint Programmes. We translated this approach into a manual that can be used throughout the European Higher Education Area.

VLUHR QA is an internationally recognised quality assurance agency that is able to carry out programme reviews according to the European Approach for Quality Assurance of Joint Programmes, or in short European Approach.

A uniform review of an international joint programme is no easy task. To provide an answer to this, the Ministers of the European Higher Education Area have given their agreement to have these programmes reviewed by the European Approach. On the basis of this framework, VLUHR QA has developed a manual that guarantees the smooth progress of the reviewt and, among other things, describes the objectives, phases, standards and expectations in detail.

It is an independent and expert international panel that expresses an opinion on the quality of the programme. The focus of the review is enhancement-led, by means of concrete recommendations. During the review process, we pay particular attention to the diversity and individuality of the partners involved and the requirements of the various accreditation organisations. VLUHR QA is not an accreditation organisation itself, which allows us to tailor the review process to your demands and ambitions, without compromising the European requirements and the possibility to use the review report for application.
