In the EU, the mobility of many professionals is governed by the Professional Qualifications Directive. The instrument was introduced in 2005 and adapted in 2013. Due to be implemented on 18 January 2016, the directive’s transposition apparently leaves much to be desired. On 7 March 2019 the Commission issued a large number of infringement proceedings against the Member States for having incorrectly transposed the directive.

In case you’ve missed the deadline: Last month, you received an email to participate in the National Student Survey (NSE). Every year all students in the Netherlands are asked to fill in this questionnaire. Are you willing to give input to improve our programmes? As a participant you will have a chance to win a travel voucher of €2,000 or one of the 500 Ticketmaster gift cards.

Thank you in advance for your participation!
