Similarity Report: How much time will Turnitin take to generate similarity report for my submitted file?

(Last edited: Friday, 25 June 2021, 2:22 PM)

Students are eligible for a similarity report within 30 minutes (by standard) for the first three uploads of the assignment via Turn-it-in. However, from the 4th submission, the similarity report may take up to 24 hours to generate.

Students are strongly advised to upload their final reports at least 30 minutes before the deadline.

Student Account: Who can I contact in case of loss of access to my student account?

(Last edited: Thursday, 10 February 2022, 1:17 PM)


If a student’s account denies access, this can have multiple reasons. Below the 3 most common reasons are highlighted.


  • Password change. Students have to regularly change their password to secure their account.
  • Inactivity for a longer period of time. If a student does not access his school account for a few months, the account will be blocked. The account has to be reset. The Wittenborg Front Desk can do this - send an email to have your account reset.
  • Outstanding invoice tuition fee. If a student has not yet paid the tuition fees, an account will be blocked. After receiving the payment, the account will be reactivated.

For further information ask the Front Desk for support. This can be done either via email to frontdesk@wittenborg.eu or contact Helpdesk or by going to the Front Desk in person.



Submission Deadline: My submission deadline is at 16:00. How late can I submit my assignment on Turnitin?

(Last edited: Thursday, 10 February 2022, 1:19 PM)


Submissions of assignments just a few minutes before the deadline can be a risky issue. This is because it can take a few minutes before the system registers your uploaded work. Therefore, the student must always upload all assignments with sufficient time left in order for the work to be stamped in time. Submitting with sufficient time will also allow the student to correct any mistakes in the assignment.  Consigning submissions at least 24 hours before the actual deadline may be a safe measure and can prevent any last-minute stress or failure of submissions.


For any technical reason for non-submission or failure to upload assignments, please contact your teacher and Helpdesk.

  • Open Microsoft Teams desktop or web client.
  • Click on the user icon, located in the right hands side of upper Teams bar.
  • Then click Manage Account to open the Teams Settings.

Turnitin Submissions: Why can't I upload my assignment on Turnitin while there is still sufficient time for the deadline?

(Last edited: Friday, 14 January 2022, 4:40 PM)

There could be errors in the upload area. Should you face this difficulty, contact your module teacher as soon as possible, as well as Helpdesk.


Turnitin Upload: Why does the upload status show "processing" even after I have submitted my work?

(Last edited: Friday, 14 January 2022, 4:41 PM)

If you are getting a status report "processing", it means your work has yet to be checked by Turnitin. Therefore, the work has been submitted but not yet checked. During the first 3 submissions, it takes anywhere between a few seconds to a few hours to see your report. It will take 24 to 48 hours for the 4th submission onward to reflect the report.


You can write to ict@wittenborg.eu or put a request to Helpdesk to share any further concerns.


Unenrolment: I am unenrolled from my course automatically and I cannot see the course on my Dashboard neither I can access the course Team

(Last edited: Thursday, 10 February 2022, 1:21 PM)


Students get unenrolled automatically, if they are inactive in the course area for 21 consecutive days.

Students can always re-enrol themselves using the enrolment keys from the process tutor area, if it is required.


VitalSource: How to access required reading materials from Pearson via Vital Source.

(Last edited: Tuesday, 6 September 2022, 4:17 PM)

The access to all the Pearson books are integrated through the Online Library & Resources and relevant course areas on Wittenborg-Online.

In order to get the best reading and studying experience, staff/students need to register the first time they access the database. The registration page will only show on the first time registration. Once a user is registered, the system will link the user bookshelf account with their Learning Management System (LMS) account and will never ask again for login.

You can find the HowTo guide enclosed herewith.

Bank Accounts: What is an IBAN?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 8 September 2020, 10:51 PM)

IBAN stands for International Bank Account Number and is a number attached to all accounts in the EU countries. It is made up of a unique code that identifies the country in which the account is opened, the account holder's bank and the account number. The IBAN helps to make the process of cross-border payments easier and faster. The bank assigns an IBAN to your account. You need to use the IBAN when sending interbank transfers or wiring money from one bank account to another, especially across international borders.

The structure of the IBAN is as follows: The country code NL / 2-digit control number / 4 letters that identify the bank / 10 digits, which consist of the current account number supplemented with zeros.

Example of a Dutch IBAN:  NL73 INGB 123 456 78 00
