NQA’s collaboration with the University of Curacao dates from 2006. It began with supervision from afar and culminated in support on location and attaining a positive NVAO ruling. A mix of experts from the Caribbean and The Netherlands invariably sit on the panels. 

In 2010, NQA carried out an actual assessment, naturally with other panel members and secretaries than those involved in the initial advisory function. In the mean time, nine study programmes have been positively assessed by our panels and have also received a positive NVAO verdict. NQA recently carried out comprehensive trial audits to prepare two new study programmes for an external assessment.

‘What I remember about my visit to the UoC is how very motivated the students were to successfully complete their studies and then to use their competencies to contribute to developing the island.’
