Obtain your University Teaching Qualification at VU Amsterdam

You will learn how to apply active learning techniques, supervise students and design your own courses. You will be working together with colleagues, but the programme will be tailored to you to help you develop your own effective style of teaching.

This course is also available in Dutch.

After the programme, you will have proven ability to develop and teach courses at university level. The University Teaching Qualification (UTQ) is recognized by all Dutch universities.

This programme is intended for new teachers. If you have more than five years’ teaching experience, you can opt for the fast-track programme. If you have a first-level teaching qualification for secondary school teaching or are already semi-qualified, you can also do an individual programme that enables you to demonstrate any missing components. Not sure which programme suits you best? In that case, please contact us.
