Our election program

For the last 13 years, Lijst Calimero has had a clear vision: students come to the UG for challenging, interesting and thought-provoking education. That is the type of education we want for all UG students, because that is what they all deserve. In this election programme, you can see how we hope to improve the quality of education next study year.

Our vision

Our vision is based on three themes. We want to improve what you study, how you study and where you study.

What you study

According to us, it is the main task of the UG to provide its students with high quality education. Therefore, the content of your university degree programme is essential for the value of your diploma.

Our key points Our key points

How you study

The structure of education has a large impact on its quality. Students should always be at the centre of learning. Furthermore, the UG needs to adapt to recent developments and should be innovative in its education.

Our key points Our key points

Where you study

Students should be able to not only gain knowledge from their studies at the UG, but also develop themselves personally. We believe that students can only do so in an environment in which challenges and relaxation are balanced. Furthermore, in a quickly changing landscape where internationalization and diversity are becoming important topics, the UG should make sure it is a good host to all incoming students.
