A normal day of lectures starts at 08.45 and finishes at 17.30. Students spend an average of 30 hours a week at the faculty, excluding independent study time. Generally speaking,  lectures are not compulsory, but most laboratory courses and projects are subject to attendance requirements. The lecturers choose suitable methods for conveying the subject matter, such as the explanation of theory in lectures, the application of theory during small-scale classroom lessons and working with other students in projects.

Binding recommendation

TU Delft employs the BSA system: the binding recommendation on the continuation of studies. This means that you must obtain at least 75 per cent of your credits (i.e. 45 of the 60 ECTS) in your first year in order to continue your programme. If you receive a negative binding recommendation on the continuation of studies, you will not be permitted to enroll in this programme again in the next 4 years.
