Alumni and the Professional Field

Finally, alumni too are deployed to assess the quality of education. Every two years a questionnaire, commissioned by the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU), is distributed amongst recent graduates of Dutch universities. The results of this so-called WO-Monitor (wetenschappelijk onderwijs) [university education monitor] are made available through MIVU. In addition, all institutes have appointed a Professional Field Advisory Council or are in the process of doing so. The Professional Field Advisory Council also offers an excellent opportunity to gain insight into the interface between education and the professional field.
