A 4TU certificate for (either) competence Teach or competence Supervising students. For specific learning outcomes, see the courses mentioned under ‘Organisation’


The partial University Teaching Qualification certificate (UTQ-PartCertificate) is a certificate for a part of the UTQ, namely either competence Teach or the competence Supervising Students. The certificate provides recognition for the competences a teacher gained in teaching and/or supervising students.  You can obtain a UTQ-PartCertificate for the competences Teaching and/or for the competence Supervising students. The certificate is also valid at other Universities in the Netherlands.

To obtain the UTQ-PartCertificate, you need to have sufficient work experience, follow a course and provide evidence for your competences.


What does the UTQ-PartCertificate trajectory look like?

 Kick off + intervision

The trajectory consists of a kick-off and 2 intervision sessions.
During the trajectory, you will have a mentor. The mentor will explain the trajectory to you and facilitate the learning process in the intervision group meetings. The meetings will be on-campus. 

The cursory part

In parallel, you also attend one of our courses. In the cursory part you gather evidence, including  feedback from peers and students. You hand in evidence for your competence and will be assessed by your trainer. After successfully completing the course and the assessment, you will obtain a PartCertificate.

In case you opt for the PartCertificate Teach, you have to register for the CELT course 2a Practical Teaching Skills, run 5 (starting March 9).In case you opt for the PartCertificate Supervising students, you have to register for the course Supervising Final project run 4 (starting Feb 1) or run 6 (starting May 9).


Participants must have sufficient recent work experience at university or HBO, or be planning to have so in the coming semester.

·         For the PartCertificate Teaching you need at least 20 teaching contact hours.
·         For the ParCertificate Supervising students you need to have supervised at least 4 supervision tracks (e.g., thesis, internship, project). Preferable both individual and group supervision
