AUC in the Keuzegids 2022
Programmes ranked in the Keuzegids receive an overall score based on a number of categories, including the content of the programme, quality of teaching, atmosphere, campus facilities and more. This ranking results in an index with a scale from 0 to 100. Study programmes ranking 75 or higher then qualify for the 'Top Rated Programme' designation. With an overall score of 77, AUC ranks among the best study programmes in the country. AUC was rated particularly highly in the broader categories of study programme content, teaching, and methods of examination, assessments and receiving feedback/results.
What makes a 'top programme'?
Bachelor's programmes with this designation represent the top of university programmes according to the guide. The seal is especially meaningful because the Keuzegids is one of the only independent consumer guides to compare the quality of all national degree programmes in the Netherlands. This means that independent and diverse groups of both students and experts have been asked to give their opinions about many aspects of university life, from faculty to facilities and more.
The rankings are based on the national Studiekeuzedatabase and are updated using a variety of other data sources, including the Nationale studentenenquete 2021 for the opinions of students, the evaluation of expert panels such as the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO) and the reports of the panels NVAO have consulted themselves. The resulting score weights success-related indicators and personal evaluations equally.
