In the Keuzegids Masters 2015 all university master's programmes in the Netherlands are compared with each other. Programmes are awarded scores between 20 and 100, and if they score 76 or more, they are awarded the designation 'top-class programmes'. Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation, scored 80 points. Technical Medicine scored 78 points. This master obtained the Top-class seal last year as well.


The Keuzegids Masters 2015 in many cases gives prospective master's students a clear overview of the quality of the different master's programmes, as it considers all officially registered university and university of applied sciences master's programmes, approximately 1250 in total. After the programmes have been categorized in different disciplines, they are compared with regard to content. In most master's programmes, a quality assessment is also given based on student judgements and the assessment of the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO). Of the 750 master's programmes which are being assessed, 82 receive the designation 'Top-class programme'. These programmes can be identified in the guide as being assessed '++' or '+++'.
