Education Policy

The Strategic Plan describes our university’s objectives concerning education. Subsequently, they are tightened up in the performance agreements that were made as part of the Outline Agreement with the Minister of Education, Culture, and Sciences. The responsibility for realising these objectives lies with the Faculties and the Departments, under the final responsibility of the Executive Board. Realising the ambitious objectives for education and elaborating and executing education policy requires much effort, extra financial means, and clear and consistent guidance. For this reason, our university chose to implement the policy as a programme. This programme was dubbed Onderwijsagenda [VU Education Agenda]. The Programme Manager of the education agenda, together with the Faculties and the Services, and under the direct management of the Rector, elaborates the plans and coordinates and monitors implementation.
