Institutional Review Time Schedule

All recognized Flemish higher education institutions (universities and university colleges) are subject to a mandatory periodic assessment in the form of an institutional review. The review process assesses whether an institution’s education policy and quality assurance conduct (in Dutch: eigen regie) are up to standards. A positive outcome, be it conditional or not, results in an extension of the accreditation periods for accredited study programmes at that institution. A negative outcome entails a return to external quality assessments of individual study programmes by NVAO.

The next institutional review at Ghent University will take place in the autumn of 2022.

The following is an overview how we are preparing ourselves for the institutional review.

Communication Campaign

By way of preparation for the Institutional Review, the Education Department and the Communication and Marketing Department are planning a number of actions.

These actions include both broad basic communication (large target groups) and specific/targeted communication (sub-target groups).
