IT certifications

pix certification

Based on a European framework (DigComp), this certification corresponds to a certificate of digital skills, and is becoming the benchmark in digital skills for higher education and all socio-professional circles. Its aim is to help raise the general level of digital knowledge and skills, and thus prepare for the digital transformation of our entire society and economy.

The Montpellier Faculty of Science offers an optional "certifying" mode, enabling students to obtain a reliable official certification recognized by the national education system, higher education and the professional world, including Europe.

Certification in the various components of the University of Montpellier is free of charge, except in the case of continuing education and apprenticeships. It is managed within each component by a teacher in charge.

Tutoring is one of the ways in which the University of Montpellier helps students to succeed.

Free of charge, tutoring provides students with academic and moral support throughout the year. A real synergy between students and teachers, it enables students to put their knowledge into practice through sessions organized by tutors.

Tutors are students in higher education, either in training (trainee tutors) or having completed a specific "Qualification for tutor functions" course (qualified tutors).

For students, by students, supervised by teachers, tutoring takes several forms:

  • Disciplinary tutoring covers courses in the school's training areas. Sessions are presented in the form of exercises under exam conditions, such as mock exams for PACES students, and commentaries on judgments or practical cases for law students.
  • Documentary tutoring helps to train students in documentary research and the use of digital tools to access and exploit resources useful to their academic careers.
  • Disability tutoring involves providing personalized support to PASS students recognized as having a disability, by adapting teaching methods.
  • Tutoring as part of adapted courses concerns students enrolled in the "yes if" success scheme. This type of tutoring focuses on work methodology and pedagogical support.

Would you like to take part in tutoring sessions?

You must be enrolled at the University of Montpellier for initial training. You'll find all the information you need about tutoring sessions in your faculty, school or institute.

Would you like to become a tutor?

If you are registered at the University of Montpellier for a national diploma, you can apply to the tutor in charge. To do so, you'll need to submit a cover letter and curriculum vitae, and specify the type of tutoring you'd like to do. You may be asked to attend an interview.

If your application is approved, you will be required to enroll as a trainee tutor in the "Training for Qualified Tutor Functions" option as part of the validation of a UE or in the "Training for Qualified Tutor Functions" University Diploma. You will then receive training and complete an internship.
