The results of the Student Parliament Elections 2024

From March 4th to March 20th, 2024, this year's Student Parliament elections took place. TalTech Student Parliament is the highest decision-making body representing students, and has the right to adopt TalTech students views and decisions. Representatives of all Schools of TalTech are represented in the Student Parliament.


The Student Parliament stands for the interests of TalTech students, elects representatives to the decision-making bodies of the university, elects the board of the Student union, directs projects that improve students learning and activities, etc.


The Student Parliament meets regularly once a month. In addition, each member of the Student Parliament chooses one of the two committees to work with: the Academic Committee and the Student Life Committee.


All TalTech students had the opportunity to apply from February 5 to 15. There were a total of 25 candidates across the five faculties: 4 in the School of Engineering, 4 in Estonian Maritime Academy, 5 in the School of Science, 7 in the School of IT and 5 in the School of Business and Governance. One of the candidates from the School of Economics, Mark Toomsalu, gave up her place in the Student Parliament because she was elected as a member of the board of the student body in the field of student life.


There are 15 members in the Student Parliament, and the mandates were distributed among the faculties as follows: four mandates each for the School of Engineering and IT, three mandates for the School of Business and Governance, and two mandates each for the School of Science and the Estonian Maritime Academy. The elections were held in the Student Portal. The elections were very successful in terms of voter turnout: this year’s voter turnout of 12% is the highest it's been for the last five years.


The new membership was announced on March 25, at the Student Parliament’s thank-you event.
