About us

SBB and Nuffic jointly form the structure for international credential evaluation. We have been commissioned to perform this service by the Dutch government Ministries of Education, Culture and Science and Social Affairs and Employment.

  • Samenwerkingsorganisatie Beroepsonderwijs Bedrijfsleven (SBB, Foundation for Cooperation on Vocational Education, Training and Labour Market) is responsible for evaluating study programmes from other countries that are comparable to study programmes in Dutch senior secondary vocational education and training institutions (MBO) and preparatory vocational secondary education (VMBO).
  • Nuffic is responsible for evaluating study programmes from other countries that are comparable to Dutch senior general secondary education (HAVO) and pre-university education (VWO), and higher education (HBO and WO).
