It is your responsibility to ensure that the electronic submission of your work is successful and completed on time.

 

  1. Different assessments may have different compulsory requirements that will activate the upload link. These requirements are visible to students in the course area. Failure to fulfil these criteria will not permit you to submit your work
  2. We strongly recommend that the final submission to be done at least 30 minutes before the deadline. Leaving the submission for the last minutes could result in failure to submit your work. If you’re not sure what the deadline date and time is click on the submission link where the details will be displayed
  3. In case of technical issues, please contact Helpdesk only.
  4. Make sure you are submitting the correct file type. We recommend to upload word files to Turn-it-in.
  5. Once you have submitted your assignment, make sure the submission was successful. You will receive an email confirmation if the submission to Turn-it-in was successful (in your university email address). You can also click on the submission link to ensure if the file listed/visible is the correct file.

Question:

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)
Answer:

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.

Question:

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)
Answer:

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.

Note:

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

Turnitin: How to access the Turnitin Guide

(Last edited: Friday, 18 September 2020, 1:59 PM)

Further details of the Turnitin submission process are provided during Wittenborg Introduction Week.

Question:

Visa Collection: How can I pick up my visa?

(Last edited: Monday, 20 April 2020, 9:18 AM)
Answer:

Please contact the local embassy/consulate directly for an appointment via their website or by e-mail, and at the same time inform Wittenborg of the progress. This appointment can be a document collection procedure, therefore, students need to prepare all original and copies of required documents in advance (including all the documents which are also sent to Wittenborg).

Our Admissions Team will inform students by email which embassy/consulate they need to attend and will send the MVV Issue form beforehand.

A complete list of Dutch embassies and consulates around the world can be found on the Dutch Foreign Ministry website:

http://www.rijksoverheid.nl/onderwerpen/ambassades-consulaten-en-overige-vertegenwoordigingen#ref-minbuza.

Students should bring the following documents to the embassy:

  • TEV approval letter in Dutch (translation not necessary). 
  • Copies of all the documents (to be left with the embassy) that you sent to us along with your original documents.

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

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.

Question:

What is Basisregistratie Personen (BRP)?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 1 March 2022, 9:13 AM)
Answer:

If you have moved to the Netherlands and intend to live here for more than 4 months, you must register yourself in the Basisregistratie Personen – BRP (Personal Records Database). You can do this by visiting the City Hall of your municipality. 

Similarly, if you move to another municipality in the Netherlands, you must notify the new municipality of your change of address.

Once you register in the BRP, you will receive your BSN.

Failing to do these might result in withdrawal of study visa by the Dutch Immigration Office (IND). In such a case you will be required to leave the country and apply for a new MVV (entry visa) from your home country to continue with your studies. Eventually, it will cost you time and money.

Important note: You must inform Registry Office (registrar@wittenborg.eu) whenever you change your address within the Netherlands. The same applies when you are planning to deregister from the City Hall and leave the country for a temporary period of time or permanently.


Question:

What is MEEs?

(Last edited: Monday, 3 July 2023, 11:04 AM)
Answer:

Starting from the academic year 2022-2023, all new students starting their programmes at Wittenborg will not only follow normal assessments that lead to European Credits, but will also be required to complete a Multidisciplinary (phase) Exit Exams (MEEs) at the end of each learning phase. This means that for bachelor’s students, there will be an MEE at the end of phase 1, phase 2 and phase 3. For Master’s students, the MEE is at the end of semester 2. The MEEs are compulsory and must be completed in order to graduate.

Why MEE?

The rationale of having the MEE is to monitor and evaluate the progress of WUAS students from a more comprehensive and in-depth perspective. This new assessment will enable students to better evaluate their educational progress as well as the development of competencies required to become business administrators and managers. A good performance will make graduates stand out in the eyes of employers. It is an assessment that students must pass to complete a course and be promoted to the next phase. It is a way to maintain graduation standards, assurance of learning and quality of retained knowledge and skills. This exam is important as it can ensure that WUAS students meet educational standards. In return, it can also influence educational policy at WUAS
