|Title||Perspectives and Prospects as long-awaited TNE Bill is approved in the Netherlands|
|Author||Rosa Becker - Senior Researcher, Netherlands organisation for internationalisation of education (Nuffic)|
After two years in the making and a heated policy debate, the Dutch House of Representatives – the Lower House of Parliament – has passed a Bill that will further encourage international joint programme development and allow Dutch higher education institutions to start offering full Dutch degree programmes abroad. The Bill is now passed on for a vote in the Senate – the Upper House of Parliament – which has the right to accept or reject legislative proposals (but not to amend them). Pending Senate approval, an administrative decree is expected to be published in the summer, filling in the details and general conditions of the proposed legislation. This decree will be subject to a government vote as well (by a new government coalition, following general elections this March).
