Autonomy of universities assessed



Dutch universities score mixed on the European University Association EUA’s university autonomy scorecard. For example, universities here are not allowed to decide entirely on their own how many students they admit. They also have to ask permission for new courses. If their financial reserves are too big, the Inspectorate will come and talk. On the other hand, the government again does not interfere in the appointment of administrators or in personnel policy. According to this list, English universities have most autonomy. (HOP, BB)
