Internship/Work Placement Waiver: Will my prior work experience be counted as an internship?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 13 October 2020, 5:59 PM)

There are no exceptions offered by Wittenborg for the work placement. All regular students must fulfil the conditions of this module. All regular students will have to go through the assessment of this module (Weekly and Monthly Journals, Work Evaluation Report and Work Evaluation Report Oral Defence).

The Graduation and Examination Board recognises that students can ask at the entry of the programme to be deemed as having done the work placement module. This will only be considered if the following has been fulfilled:

1. The student has done a prior WP which had at least the same duration of a normal Wittenborg WP and was done not more than two years prior to the date of admission to the respective programme.

2. This prior WP has not been credited before, by another education institute.

3. The student is able to provide the WP Coordinator with:

  • a. A proper and detailed job description
  • b. A recommendation letter from the company

4. The WP Coordinator will contact the company with regards to the recommendation letter.

5. If all conditions have been met, the WP Coordinator will formally recommend to the Graduation and Examination Board of the student’s request of compensating the WP duration period.  

6. If approved, the student will need to write the Work Evaluation Report (WER) and defend it.

7. The final approval is given by the Graduation and Examination Board.

To start this process, you need to fill in this FORM. the link for the form is:
