Renewed accreditation for Master Programme Geo-information Science and Earth Observation

The academic Master of Science degree programme of Geo-information Science and Earth Observation has received a renewed accreditation by NVAO, the Accreditation Organization of the Netherlands and Flanders. The MSc study programme of our faculty has also been awarded the distinctive feature ‘internationalization’.

NVAO aims are to assess and assure the quality of Dutch and Flemish higher education: to assure that the level and quality of education is up to standard and that this is recognizable by and transparent for society.


The accreditation is an acknowledgement for all MSc tracks. Moreover, the 9 Joint Educational Programmes (JEPs) were accredited which we maintain with Chang An, Gadjah Mada, IIRS, Ghana, CNU, BNU, TU Bandung, the iGEON course with Lund and the GEM course with Lund, Southampton, Reykjavik and Warsaw.


ITC is very excited about the result. In particular, the awarding of the distinctive feature internationalization marks a special step.
