Registration: I am unable to meet the study credit requirement to continue my registration at WUAS, what do I do?
The Wittenborg EEG rules and regulations state that, in order to continue a successful registration, a student must obtain at least 30 European study credits (ECs) within 12 months.
Only where there are mitigating circumstances preventing the student from successful studying and, therefore, leaving the student unable to gain sufficient credits to continue their studies, can exemption to the credit requirement be requested. The request must be submitted by filling in this webform. Please be aware that an exemption to the credit requirement can only be requested once within the duration of the degree programme.
The Student Registrar will evaluate the request based on the explanation and documentation provided and will inform the student and the Process Tutor of the final decision within 2 weeks after the request has been submitted. The request will only be taken into consideration if the request has been submitted at least 1 block before the 12 months have passed.
If a student does not meet the credit requirement
by the end of the 12 months and did not have any mitigating circumstances
preventing the student from obtaining the credits, the deregistration process
will be set into motion within 4 weeks after the 12 months have passed. For EU
students, the deregistration will be communicated to the Dienst Uitvoering
Onderwijs (DUO). For non-EU/EER students, WUAS will inform the Immigration and
Naturalisation Service (IND) of deregistration, leading to a revocation of the
study residence permit.

Residence Permit: I am from the UK. Am I exempt from applying for a residence permit in the Netherlands post Brexit?
No. As you will know, the UK left the EU on 31 January 2020. Because your right of residence has changed as a result of Brexit, you have to arrange your residence after Brexit.
The Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) has come up with
a Withdrawal Agreement with the UK. This agreement consists of a transition period from 1 February, 2020, up to and including 31 December, 2020, during which UK nationals who are already here in the Netherlands
must take action to make sure they can also stay in the Netherlands after 31
December, 2020, by submitting an application for
residence. To make sure you are ready to submit your application online, please
first take care of the next few things first:
If you have not already done so, register yourself in person in the Personal Records Database (Basisregistratie Personen or BRP) at your town hall. The IND is linked to the BRP. If you register in the BRP, the IND can get in touch with you.
It is very important that your personal details in the Personal Records Database (BRP) are correct, as based on these details the IND will send invitation letters. In this letter, the IND will invite you to submit an application for residence after 31 December, 2020. If your application is approved you will receive a (new) residence document, which you will need to continue to live, work and study in the Netherlands. The application costs €58 for adults and €31 for children under 18.

Residence Permit: I have arrived in the Netherlands, but I cannot collect my residence permit, as IND has limited their office hours. What can I do?
If your residence permit is ready to be collected at the IND office, Wittenborg will have informed you of the collection of your residence permit by email.
The current IND regulations state that you must pick up your residence permit within 3 months as stated on your MVV sticker. However, if you are unable to do so, as the IND states that the residence permits cannot be picked up at the IND office until 6th of April, please inform us (email firstname.lastname@example.org) if you cannot meet the 3-months deadline. Wittenborg will then request IND for an extension of these 3 months, so that you can collect your residence permit later at the IND office.
