Project Weeks: How can I attend the Project Weeks?
At least 6 times a year, Wittenborg students are involved in a project week that challenges them through real-life, real-time projects organised by the university in cooperation with various companies and organisations, both locally, nationally and sometimes internationally.
Students are divided into project groups and are given an assignment to be completed in a short period of time, usually one or two weeks. This means dealing with deadlines and pressure while working for a real client. At the end of the project week, findings are presented in a professional setting at Wittenborg University: an opportunity to hone consulting and presenting skills. In short: a stimulating and educational experience that prepares students for the reality of their future careers.

Redirecting Post: How can I get my post redirected to my new residence overseas?

This will enable all posts to your old address to be automatically redirected to the new address abroad. This service from Postnl is free of charge.
To avoid confusion because the website is mainly in Dutch, there is the option of visiting a Postnl office in your area and activating this service.
You can apply for this service online by visiting their Postnl website at: https://www.postnl.nl/ontvangen/post-doorsturen/doorzendservice/.

Residence Permit Gap: What is the "residence permit gap" and the consequences if I have a gap in the residence permit period?
A residence gap is an interruption in your continuous stay and may cause problems later on if you want to apply for a Dutch permanent residence. In general, a residence permit gap has affects in the longer term, if you decide to apply for a Dutch permanent residence permit in the future. In order to apply for a permanent residence permit, one of the requirements is that you have legally resided in the Netherlands for an uninterrupted period of five years or more before you make the permanent residence permit application. This means that you require to have had a valid residence permit for the full five years, without interruptions or gaps within this period. You have thus always applied for extension of your residence permit on time. Another requirement is that within these five consecutive years you have not stayed outside the Netherlands for six or more consecutive months, or three years in a row for four or more consecutive months.
The consequence of a residence permit gap is that the period of legal residence in the Netherlands before this gap will not be taken into consideration. This means that you will have to start again building up a five-year uninterrupted period in the Netherlands to obtain permanent residency.
For example: If your first residence permit is issued
from 01-09-2009 till 31-08-2013, and if you apply for residence permit
extension later than your expiration date (31-08-2013), then residency gap is
created, and the IND starts counting from that day onwards -- that day your application
form is received by the IND. Even a single day difference is recognised as a

Residence Permit: I am from the UK. Am I exempt from applying for a residence permit in the Netherlands post Brexit?
No. As you will know, the UK left the EU on 31 January 2020. Because your right of residence has changed as a result of Brexit, you have to arrange your residence after Brexit.
The Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) has come up with
a Withdrawal Agreement with the UK. This agreement consists of a transition period from 1 February, 2020, up to and including 31 December, 2020, during which UK nationals who are already here in the Netherlands
must take action to make sure they can also stay in the Netherlands after 31
December, 2020, by submitting an application for
residence. To make sure you are ready to submit your application online, please
first take care of the next few things first:
If you have not already done so, register yourself in person in the Personal Records Database (Basisregistratie Personen or BRP) at your town hall. The IND is linked to the BRP. If you register in the BRP, the IND can get in touch with you.
It is very important that your personal details in the Personal Records Database (BRP) are correct, as based on these details the IND will send invitation letters. In this letter, the IND will invite you to submit an application for residence after 31 December, 2020. If your application is approved you will receive a (new) residence document, which you will need to continue to live, work and study in the Netherlands. The application costs €58 for adults and €31 for children under 18.

Residence Permit: I have arrived in the Netherlands, but I cannot collect my residence permit, as IND has limited their office hours. What can I do?
If your residence permit is ready to be collected at the IND office, Wittenborg will have informed you of the collection of your residence permit by email.
The current IND regulations state that you must pick up your residence permit within 3 months as stated on your MVV sticker. However, if you are unable to do so, as the IND states that the residence permits cannot be picked up at the IND office until 6th of April, please inform us (email firstname.lastname@example.org) if you cannot meet the 3-months deadline. Wittenborg will then request IND for an extension of these 3 months, so that you can collect your residence permit later at the IND office.
