Approximately three months after the site visit, the university receives a recommendations report. This report sets out a structured depiction of the Audit results. Based on the assessment of the self-evaluation report and the findings gained from the site visit, the recommendations report provides an analysis of the university's internationality and offers recommendations for its further development in the four major areas of Planning & Steering, Study & Teaching, Research & Technology Transfer, and Advice & Support.
As with the self-evaluation report, the recommendations report is treated as confidential by the Audit team. There is no obligation to publish; it is up to the university to decide whether and how it makes the information contained in the report accessible to a third party.
