VLUHR QA carries out programmes assessments in Flemish higher education and according the European Approach. 

In a first phase, all programmes that are visited write a concise but critical self-evaluation report. An independent committee of experts then visits the programme, which makes an assessment of the programme on the basis of the Generic Quality Assurances from the NVAO accreditation framework. The assessment report is made public in and can be found on this website. 

The programmes are visited according to a predetermined time schedule .
