Accreditations

All programmes at the Royal Conservatoire have been evaluated positively by the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO).

Experiment Institutional Accreditation with a Lighter Programme Accreditation/ Pilot Institutional Accreditation
The University of the Arts The Hague passed an Institutional Audit in 2020. Institutions that have successfully completed the Institutional Audit have the opportunity to apply for participation in the ‘Experiment Institutional Accreditation with a Lighter Programme Accreditation’. The experiment was set up by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science and is implemented by NVAO. The University of the Arts applied, and was permitted, to take part in the experiment. Existing programmes offered by institutions which have passed an Institutional Audit are normally assessed with a limited framework featuring four NVAO standards. In the context of the ‘Experiment Institutional Accreditation with a Lighter Programme Accreditation’, however, these programmes are being reviewed with a lighter framework:

Only the assessment in relation to standard 1 (Intended learning outcomes) and standard 4 (Achieved learning outcomes) is presented to NVAO as part of the application for accreditation of the programmes. The institution is responsible for organising the assessment of standards 2 and 3 independently, without involvement from NVAO in the review process.
