De meningen ge-uit door medewerkers en studenten van de TU Delft en de commentaren die zijn gegeven reflecteren niet perse de mening(en) van de TU Delft. De TU Delft is dan ook niet verantwoordelijk voor de inhoud van hetgeen op de TU Delft weblogs zichtbaar is. Wel vindt de TU Delft het belangrijk - en ook waarde toevoegend - dat medewerkers en studenten op deze, door de TU Delft gefaciliteerde, omgeving hun mening kunnen geven.

Say what you want about your education


Do you have something to say about your education? For example, do you think your teacher is very motivating or inspiring or maybe the opposite? Or maybe you have an opinion about the study places? At the TU Delft, you can make yourself heard and participate in the Central Student Council or your Faculty Student Council. If you are interested, this is your moment, because they are all looking for you!

Each year in May, the elections for the Central Student Council and Faculty Student Council take place. Students are elected to take place in the Student Councils of the university. Together with the university staff, they make decisions about education, raise issues about the current curriculum and discuss the facilities. In short, they function as a bridge between students and staff and have influence on the governance of the university. Now, both the Facultary and Central Student Council are looking for successors.

Wonder what they actually achieve? Well, the Central Student Council successfully argued against the ‘binding recommendation on continuation of studies’ (ofwel Bindend Studie Advies) in the second year. They also pushed for the XXL opening hours at the library. On the faculty level the achievements vary per faculty. At IDE for example, the Student Council collaborates with the faculty to limit the amount of exams and deadlines in the bachelor. Some quick facts:

Central Student Council

  • fulltime
  • including 12 RAS months and financial compensation
  • monthly meetings with the Executive Board
  • currently ORAS or Lijst Bèta
  • give feedback on topics like internationalisation, study places, teacher quality, Sports & Culture

Faculty Student Council

  • parttime (4-6 hours a week)
  • including financial compensation
  • monthly meetings with the dean of the faculty
  • give feedback on topics like facultary facilities, study programmes, support staff, other faculty issues

Sounds interesting, right? Email the Central Student Council at, or check the contact details of your Faculty Council at the TU Delft website.

Important dates:

  • Wednesday 30 March 2016, 17:00 – handing in candidate lists (deadline for finding successors)
