Wageningen University is the first university in the Netherlands to get an international accreditation. This will make it easier for the university to attract good students from overseas.
This recognition is viewed as a stamp of quality by international students. It gives the assurance that not only is English the language of communication in the Master's classes in the Wageningen University, but also that admission and facilities are well organized.
This international accreditation is a new development. It is given by the Dutch-Flemish Accreditation Organization (NVAO), known for its education visitations. Other universities too, such as Maastricht and Groningen, are working towards this international accreditation.
