Lijst Bèta strives to ensure that all students of the Delft University of Technology can and will get the most of their education when studying here! As a Central Student Council party, it is our responsibility to represent all students in the decision-making processes of the university. Since the Central Student Council is the only official student representational body, we as Lijst Bèta believe that we should use our legal rights wisely, and have the quality of your education as our top priority.

We want the TU Delft to provide its students with innovative, challenging and future-proof education of world-class quality. In an open and inclusive learning environment where everyone feels inspired and safe. As the younger party in the Central Student Council, we are progressive, and we see it as our task to put important, but sometimes less popular issues, such as climate change and Diversity & Inclusion, on the agenda. Through that, we want to enable you to develop yourself and get the most out of your time here at the TU Delft!


Lijst Bèta strives for innovative and inspiring education, so that you can become a well-rounded Delft engineer. Furthermore, the university should provide excellent (educational) facilities for your needs as a student.  Therefore, we believe that:

  • Education should be about improving yourself instead of proving yourself
  • The university should provide more and better study places, also for master thesis students
  • The curricula should challenge students to develop themselves, by teaching them the necessary 21st century skills such as programming, reflecting, critical thinking and (multidisciplinary) collaboration
  • Motivating education offers autonomy, so that students can choose their education in a structured manner
  • We want students to have more direct influence on their courses
  • Our teachers define the way students experience their education at the TU Delft. This is an important role that should not be taken lightly, by the university nor by the teachers themselves 
  • Inspiring education of high quality is only possible when educational tasks are rewarded equally, instead of the current prioritization of research activities. Researching teachers should have the possibility to excel in their didactic skills

Furthermore, there is a practical side to innovative and inspiring education. Our student population continues to grow, which puts pressure on already limited resources. Lijst Bèta wants to the university to:

  • Provide better and more fruitful ways of providing feedback, where the implementation of it is immediately visible
  • As an internationally recognized institution, offer new innovative forms of education such as blended learning to be able to offer students the best of the best


Since TU Delft offers world-class education, its community is very diverse in culture, language, nationality, lifestyle, sexual orientation, communication style, religion, and physical abilities. Although the university provides international students with excellent education, we believe that more attention should be given to the integration of students as well. As Lijst Bèta, it is our vision that:

  • The university should offer an open and safe environment for all
  • The start of your studies is focused on providing you with the right information and tools to have a good and encouraging start
  • Student organizations and community events/projects should be well-supported by the university to give everyone access to more social opportunities and student communities
  • Every layer of the organisation should be representative of the TU Delft community
  • The course content is diverse, inclusive and representative. We make solutions that work for all members of society
  • Attention should be paid to matters of students such as living costs, loneliness and stereotypes
  • Intercultural communication skills should be taught to every student
  • The university and its members take their social responsibility seriously
  • Representative bodies such as the student council should be representative of the whole student population

Growth & Well-being

It is our vision that education should guide students towards independent and critical thinking while also supporting their well-being and personal development during their time as a student. The university should focus more on improving student well-being and decreasing stress caused by high work loadWe support the cultural change initiated by TU Delft and strive for:

  • An integration of soft skills in the curricula
  • Sufficient support services that are accessible for all, such as student psychologists and counsellors
  • A shift from curative towards preventative measures
  • A less anonymous university where all students feel seen.
  • Normalization of failure, asking for help and self-reflection
  • Better thesis supervision
  • Clear and accessible information, so that you know where to go to with what question
  • Curricula designed to facilitate a healthy study balance
  • More opportunities to socialize for all students
  • More time for students to develop themselves outside their studies
campus & curricula

Climate change might be the biggest challenge of this era. Today’s students can make a difference for tomorrow! That is why Lijst Bèta calls for more attention for sustainability in education, campus, and finance. Therefore, we strive for:

  • Sustainability as an integral part of every curriculum
  • Ensuring that the TU Delft achieves the goal of being CO2-neutral in 2030
  • The learning environment to provide students with the necessary tools to engineer sustainably and to come up with innovative solutions to the sustainability challenges of the future
  • The many existing innovations to be translated into a sustainable campus
  • Scrutinizing the indirect emissions of the TU, that stem from other activities, such as finance
  • TU Delft and its organization to lead by example and show what is possible through great leadership
