Viewing the Register Instellingen en Opleidingen – RIO (Institutions and Programmes Register)

All recognised middelbaar beroepsonderwijs – MBO (secondary vocational) and tertiary education programmes are listed in the Register Instellingen en Opleidingen – RIO (Institutions and Programmes Register). These are programmes which have been approved by the ministerie van Onderwijs, Cultuur en Wetenschap – OCW (Ministry of Education, Culture and Science). Has a programme that you are following not been approved? If so, this may affect your qualification, degree, title and student grant. For example, you may not receive any student financing.
