With very small student numbers, the rating from several years is merged. More information about sources and methods, see www.keuzegids.org/methodiek (in dutch)

The symbols (+, - and o) show how the programme scores in relation to the national average.
- - - = weakest, - - = weak, - = lower than average, o = average, + = above average, ++ = strong, +++ = strongest. (o- and o+ = see explanation assessment and final level)
The total score and our rating combines all scores. The best programmes get two or three times +.
