The University Teaching Qualification (UTQ) is proof of the didactical competence of lecturers in academic education. The UTQ is recognised by all 14 Dutch universities. You obtain your UTQ via your own faculty.
The UTQ is meant for anyone who teaches, designs and evaluates within an academic program. The UTQ is required for tenures longer than 1 year and with a minimum of 0,3 FTE*.
Some educational qualifications obtained abroad are recognised by faculties in line with the UTQ. If you have questions about this, contact the UTQ assessment committee of your faculty to discuss what you might still need to do to be granted the UTQ.
*The amount of FTE might differ per faculty
