Distinctive quality feature internationalisation
In the open economies of Flanders and the Netherlands it is self-evident that the graduates of higher education programmes have achieved the right competences for working in a international and multicultural environment. Programmes have the possibility to assess their internationalisation efforts by means of the distinctive (quality)feature internationalisation.
In November 2011 the assessment frameworks for the distinctive (quality)feature internationalisation have been determined. Higher Education programmes and institutions can apply for a distinctive (quality)feature internationalisation by using these frameworks.
By the end of 2009 NVAO, in cooperation with various experts, developed an assessment framework for the distinctive (quality)feature internationalisation. In 2010 this framework has been tested in a number of pilots in which 12 HE institutions with 21 programmes from the Netherlands and Flanders participated. After the decision-making the results were presented during a special NVAO seminar “Assessment of Internationalisation” which was held on 15 December 2010. During this seminar 18 Dutch and Flemish programmes have received the distinctive quality(feature) internationalisation. In addition to the distinctive quality(feature) ten programmes have received a certificate on internationalisation with the judgement ‘good’.
The experiences that were acquired during the pilot are presented in the evaluation report: Assessment of Internationalisation - An evaluation of the NVAOs pilot procedures.
Good Practices in Internationalisation Platform (GPIP)
NVAO will collect good practices concerning internationalisation at the Good Practices in Internationalisation Platform (GPIP). HE Institutions can use this website to share their experiences with internationalisation. GPIP is launched in January 2012 during the seminar ‘Good Practices in Internationalisation’ in The Hague.

The European Consortium for Accreditation in higher education (ECA) is making a proposal for the development of an European certificate for internationalisation. European HE programmes who are under the impression that their internationalisation is good or excellent can apply for this European Certificate. It is expected that the pilot for this project will start in 2012.
