Simultaneous translation services

At institutional level Netherlands Business Academy arranges simultaneous translation services. This means that for outbound students who do not speak or read the local language (i.e. in current partnering program with institutions in Russia), two translators will accompany the students to the partner institute.

Two translators

One translator will be responsible for language translations. The second translator will be able to converse with the local staff in the specific language regarding content and provide translations on a content-based level. This should ensure correct dissemination of the necessary knowledge.

Necessary language skills

The necessary language skills and measures taken to ensure correct dissemination of knowledge are always negotiated and discussed with partner institutes before mobility. No mobility can take place without such an agreement, both for incoming as well as outgoing mobility.

Erasmus Charter for Higher Education

Netherlands Business Academy was officially awarded the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) under the Erasmus + programme. The Erasmus+ programme aims to support actions in the fields of Education, Training, youth and Sport for the periode 2021-2027.
