Models of partial compositeness are models of physics beyond the Standard Model where the Higgs field arises as a (pseudo) Goldstone boson and (some of) the fermions have a composite partner.

We discuss models of this kind with an eye to their possible UV completions such as those based on a Sp(4) or SU(4) hyper-color group with purely fermionic matter.

We also present some preliminary result on the role of the anomalous U(1)s and a brief survey of the experimental status after run 1 of the LHC.
