KoornbeursStarting this summer, the dinners at the Koornbeurs' restaurant will be cooked by volunteers. A professional cook currently handles the cooking duties, but the Koornbeurs says it can no longer afford to pay his salary.

The giving out of this award had been suspended for the past couple of years, because the VSSD thought it only fair to first see if the English tests and courses that all TU instructors were recently required to take had improved the level of English proficiency throughout the university. But according to VSSD chairwoman, Eline Kleiwegt, the 'Worst Teacher Award’ is now back because the level of English proficiency among TU Delft staff members still has room for improvement. "Students are still complaining," Kleiwegt says, "especially about pronunciation."
