General conditions student assistants

GENERAL

If you want to be eligible for employment as a student-assistant, you must meet the following conditions. You are registered as a student or auditor at a Dutch university and are preparing for a doctoraal or ingenieur examination. In addition, you render a contribution to academic higher education or research.

Pursuant to chapter 10, Article 10.2 paragraph 2 and Article 10.4 paragraph 2 of the Collective Labour Agreement Dutch Universities, the Executive Board has set further rules both for the duration and the study level (see point 1 and 2 of these provisions).

1. EXTENT AND DURATION

• maximum of 50 hours per month if you have only concluded the P-phase

• maximum of 66 hours per month if you have concluded the B2-phase

• maximum of 83 hours per month if you have concluded the B3-phase

This rule can only be deviated from if this is necessary because of the nature of the activities (for example block practical training, extensive editing work) or another reason. This is to be assessed by or on behalf of the Executive Board. The maximum duration of the employment is 12 months.

2. ESTABLISHING THE SALARY

The level of the salary depends on your study level. The Bureau Educational Affairs (BOZ) of your faculty determines this level. As a rule, the phase of study in the study programme determines your study level.

If you do not follow the normal procedure in your study programme, your study level will be determined on the basis of the number of ECTS credits you have obtained. See the overview salary indication under “study level”.

The salary level is set at the start of a small job. If the study level is increased  during the term of a small job, promotion to a higher salary number is subject to the remainder of the small job is still at least 3 months and the approval of the faculty/department. Furthermore, the salary level will not be adjusted retroactive, unless there is an obvious administrative error.

The entitlement to and taking up of leave are subsequently recorded on a digital leave card. Because it is not known in advance how many hours a student-assistant will work in a calendar year, another method has been opted for in UT-flex: you receive your holiday leave not in the form of paid time off, but in the form of a supplement  to your gross hourly pay. The level of this supplement is 11.72%.

You have temporary employment that ends by operation of law when the agreed term has expired. Another ground for termination is passing your doctoraal/master examination.
