Accreditatiestatus / accreditional status

During the first years of the programme, the programme will not yet be accredited by the NVAO (Dutch-Flamish Accreditation Organization). Therefore the degree Master of Science cannot yet be awarded to the first batch of graduates. Immediately after the first group of 15 students graduates, a request for accreditation will be submitted to the NVAO (September 2026). After getting fully accredited, the programme will provide those (of the first batch of) graduates with a MSc. degree diploma. Until the accreditation is finalized, every graduate receives a certificate.
