Question:

Special Seat: What is a special seat and how does it work?

(Last edited: Monday, 14 September 2020, 11:04 PM)
Answer:

On condition that a student has a mitigating circumstance and/or a minimum of 210ECs (Bachelors) and 50ECs (Masters), a request can be made via the Special Seat Request Form if the remaining module is not within the block(s) prior to Graduation.  A Maximum of 2 modules can be requested. A student is permitted to do a special seat only once. Otherwise reverts to the normal planning of the module.

Special Seat requests are made not later than Lesson Week 1 of the block before the planned special seat i.e. For a special seat of Block 2: the request has to be made in Lesson Week 1 of Block 1.

Question:

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

(Last edited: Thursday, 19 November 2020, 10:09 AM)
Answer:

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.

Question:

Student Card: I am a new student and wish to obtain a new student card.

(Last edited: Wednesday, 24 June 2020, 8:44 AM)
Answer:

Student Card

A student card is an identification card to show that someone is enrolled as a student of Wittenborg. A student card also allows students to use the elevator in the Aventus building and to access the rooms downstairs in the Aventus building.

Note: 

Some companies give discounts to students if they can show their student ID.

How to obtain a student card

The Front Office will apply for student cards for new students.

Once you have taken all the steps on the new student checklist, go to the Front Desk to collect the pick-up slip. With this pick-up slip, you can go to the central reception area of Aventus to have your student card made immediately.
Question:

Student Housing in Apeldoorn: What types of housing options can I choose from in the university housing in Apeldoorn?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 24 June 2020, 8:29 AM)
Answer:

Wittenborg offers accommodation in a number of different types and places, all enjoying close proximity to the university:

  • Wittenborg offers shared apartments: 3-5 students share an apartment or house
  • Wittenborg offers campus accommodation: students have their own room within a campus complex, sharing kitchen and bathroom facilities

Dutch or other EU-national students are encouraged to find their own accommodation; however, they can opt for Wittenborg’s own accommodation if available.

If you are a non-EU, ‘package-fee’-paying student who needs Wittenborg to arrange your study visa to be able to join us in Apeldoorn, part of your package fee is the first 4 months* of your accommodation fee, plus administration fee for new-arrival students.

You will be allocated a room in either an apartment or a house sharing a common area and all facilities, such as a bathroom, toilet, kitchen, etc., with other students, both male and female.

After the first 4 months* you are free to move out of Wittenborg accommodation and move into other housing of your choice.

Question:

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

(Last edited: Wednesday, 24 June 2020, 8:39 AM)
Answer:

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.

Note:

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

Question:

Submission Deadline: What should I do if I miss my submission deadline?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 24 June 2020, 8:42 AM)
Answer:

Contact your process tutor as well as the module teacher in the case of missing a submission deadline. They will decide on the next course of action. You cannot submit your work once the submission due deadline has passed.
