Quality at Webster Leiden campus recognized in audit

| October 21, 2010

Webster University in the Netherlands is now officially listed in the government’s Central Register for Short Professional Education (CRKBO). This means that Webster now complies with European guideliness for value-added tax (VAT). As a result, Webster is now officially waived from charging 19% VAT on services and therefore not required to raise tuition for this.

In order to qualify, Webster went through an auditing process which recognizes the educational quality (administrative processes, degree programs, teaching faculty etc) offered at Leiden and Amsterdam. The audit was carried out in August 2010 by an independent agency for the Ministry of Finance.

Academic director Jacques Kaat, who led the preparations, said:

“After the successful accreditation efforts for the undergraduate business and psychology programs and other academic audits on the horizon, this again shows Webster’s high quality and performance in the field of Dutch higher education. The auditor was very impressed with Webster’s organization and performance.”

Being listed with CRKBO also means that adjunct faculty are approved to teach for us by the Dutch equivalent of the IRS.
