Apeldoorn Campus: How can I find the Wittenborg location in Apeldoorn?
Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences has its main campus in Apeldoorn, which consists of two separate buildings within walking distance from one another. Both locations share a central telephone number +31 (0)88 6672 688. Both Wittenborg campuses are conveniently accessible by public transport and are just 3-4 minutes walking distance from the Apeldoorn train and bus station.
The Aventus building
The Aventus building is just across the road on the south side of the railway station and is accessible via the pedestrian and bicycle subway.
New students are always expected at the 3rd floor of the Aventus building. Upon entering the main entrance of the Aventus building, turn right where there is a café/brasserie. Walk past it and access the door on your left towards the stairs and walk up the stairs to the 3rd floor.
Note: The elevator is only
accessible with a student card.
The Spoorstraat building
The Spoorstraat building is located on the north side of the railway station and is about 3 minutes' walking distance. It can be recognised by the Wittenborg flags and the Wittenborg logo at the top of the building.

Assignment Deadline: What happens if I miss a deadline to upload an assignment on Turnitin?
Rules and regulations regarding deadlines to upload assignments at Turnitin are clearly indicated in the EEG guide of Wittenborg (Part 5 - General Assessment Policy). The deadlines to upload assignments are also clearly shown in the Online Module course area and in the Turnitin submission page. The upload area is visible to everyone who is enrolled at the online module area of the course.
You also need to consider the difference in the time zone that you are located in (for those who are not physically present in the Netherlands). Should you have technical issues, you need to contact email@example.com at least 30 minutes before the deadline with the assignment and screenshot(s) of the exact technical issue. Emails sent after the deadline will not be attended to.
If you miss the deadline to upload an assignment on Turnitin, you will have to wait for the retake possibility.
You are highly advised not to upload your assignment in the last minute.

Assignment Submission: What should I do if I have uploaded the wrong assignment?
Turnitin at Wittenborg allows you to resubmit your assignment multiple times by overwriting the previous submissions, until the due date. This allows you to check your Similarity Index Report (or originality report - that detects possible plagiarism) and resubmit if necessary. Students should always check the similarity index and ensure that it is not beyond the 20% limit set by Wittenborg (refer to EEG for more details on this). However, take note that the Similarity Index Report will generate immediately only up to three resubmission attempts (regardless whether it is the same day or different days). After three resubmissions, you will have to wait up to 24 hours for the Similarity Index Report to be generated. This feature of overwriting previous submissions ensures that your module teacher will only receive the latest submission for checking.

Assignment Submission: When can I submit my assignment?
The window period to upload assignments is open at least two weeks in advance of the due date. Avoid uploading your assignment at the last minute. Make sure to upload the assignment a day earlier to avoid complications such as technical glitches, lost internet connection, system overload etc. Submitting your assignment early also helps you to view your Similarity Index Report and ensure that the similarity index is below the 20% limit set by Wittenborg (Refer to EEG for more details). This allows you time to amend your assignment if necessary.
In case of technical issues, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org at least 30 minutes before the deadline, with the name of the module and screenshot(s) of the exact technical issue. Email sent after the deadline will not be attended to.

Assignment Submission: Will I get an extension in assignment submissions if the quality of Internet in my home country is poor?
There is no extension of deadline for submitting assignments online. It is the student's responsibility to submit the assignment on time. Many problems can surface at the last minute, such as technical glitches, failed internet connection, system or software failure etc.
If you are aware that you might encounter technical problems from your home country, it is best that you find alternative ways to submit your assignment before the deadline.
If you are still not able to solve your technical issue, please contact email@example.com at least 30 minutes before the deadline, with the name of the module assignment and screenshot(s) of the exact technical issue. Email sent after the deadline will not be attended to.
