Start! Teaching Assistant Qualification Program@UZH


The modules of the TQ are not shown on the Academic Record / Transcript of Record, is that correct?

Yes, the TA modules will show on the Academic Record.

Can I find a tutoring position at UZH through you?

We are not a job portal, but offer modules at UZH that provide an introduction to didactics. In some programmes, these are counted as proof of a teaching qualification. The positions themselves are announced by the individual study programmes/institutes. It is best to contact the person responsible in your study programme/institute or your professors for tutoring positions directly.

I would like to book several modules at the same time, is that a good idea or do you advise something else?

Several modules can be completed at the same time, but we advise caution due to the mandatory online activities/ workshops. If all mandatory dates can be attended and there is enough time for self-study, any number of modules can be booked. 

I'm tutoring next semester and would like to have worked through the courses before the start of the semester. Is this possible?

The OLAT courses always start two weeks before the start of the lecture period. This leaves enough time to complete the courses. 

Can the modules be taken at the same time while I'm tutoring?

Yes, that's no problem and can complement the tutoring well.

Does access to the OLAT courses and bookings for online events mean that I have also booked the module?

No, it doesn't. All modules must be booked via the regular module booking at UZH.

Do I automatically receive a tutoring position after completing the TA qualification program?

No, you don't. The allocation of tutoring positions is the responsibility of the institutes. Your participation in the TA qualification program can be used as a reference.

Can I take part in the TA qualification program in my first semester or is that too early?

In principle, this is not a problem, as the program develops didactic skills and competencies as well as tutoring-specific knowledge. However, it may be that your study regulations prevent you from booking our modules in the first semester. Please check again at the School for Transdisciplinary Studies.
