It is important to point out that a Certificate and Diploma of Higher education do not have a legal status within the Dutch Education system. However, the Cornerstone study programmes are accredited by the EEAA and do offer possibilities for further studies.

Several colleges which offer specialised mission related studies, have examined the Cornerstone programme and welcome Cornerstone graduates for further studies.

It is our experience that students who pursue further education elsewhere are able to bring part of their ‘Cornerstone credits’ into the study programme. The level of acceptance depends on the level and the content of the course. So it is possible to approach a college and present your Cornerstone credits to see how they can be incorporated into your new study programme.

Two of our graduates share their experiences of using their Cornerstone training for further studies.
