48 College Courses Urged to Raise Standards
The Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO) asked 48 courses offered by public and private institutions to raise standards, reports Trouw. The courses include 38 offered by public institutions and 10 by private. The agency cited low-quality theses, marking standards and students having no knowledge of research as reasons for poor standards.
