Court rejects BON’s claim

The Utrecht court has issued its verdict in summary proceedings filed by pressure group Beter Onderwijs Nederland (BON) against Maastricht University (UM), the University of Twente and the Inspectorate of Education. The court rejected BON’s claim that UM may not turn Dutch degree programmes into English programmes, for at least one year. Within that year, the government should come up with a well-considered new language policy.
