Preface by the chairman of the VLIR This report reflects the vision of the assessment panel that evaluated the academic initial and advanced Master’s study programmes in European Studies at the Flemish Universities. The assessment panel conducted its investigation and visited the study programmes in the spring of 2009. This initiative falls within the task given by the Flemish Government to the Flemish Universities and to the Flemish Interuniversity Council (VLIR) regarding the external quality assurance of academic education. The assessment panel followed the assessment procedure, in which – in addition to the very important suggestions and recommendations within the context of the continued improvement of academic education – it also gives an assessment and evaluation score concerning the six subjects and underlying aspects of the accredi- tation framework of the Dutch-Flemish Accreditation Organisation (NVAO). These evaluation scores will form an important element for the accreditation decision of the NVAO. The assessment report is intended firstly for the programmes involved and is aimed primarily at quality maintenance and improvement. In addition, the report is also in- tended to provide objective information to the outside world about the quality of the study programmes evaluated. For this reason, the report is posted on the VLIR web- site ). However, the reader must bear in mind that this assessment report is only a snapshot and is only one phase in the process of ongoing concern for educational quality. After all, after just a short time, the study programmes can be signifi cantly changed and improved, partly in response to the results of internal educational evaluations by the universities themselves, or in response to adequately formulated recommendations by the assessment panel. Firstly, I would like to thank the chairman and the members of the assessment panel for the time they have invested and for the high level of expertise and dedication with which they have performed their task.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
