Answer:

Unfortunately Wittenborg does not provide assistance in this procedure. Additionally, student housing is accorded only to students who are fully registered at Wittenborg.

Students who wish to bring along their family members can apply for a dependent visa at the IND (Immigratie en Naturalisatiedienst). More information about the conditions and requirements for this visa can be obtained via the IND website at Family | Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND).

If you have mental health problems you can get support from your GP by making an appointment with them. They can provide treatment or refer you to other mental health professionals, depending on the nature of your problems and their complexity.

Also the chat service is available through their website every day of the week from 10:00 to 22:00. The assistance is non-binding and anonymous.

MIND: The MIND Korrelatie is a national organization which provides anonymous and professional psychological assistance. The organization has a call centre (0900-1450), chat service on their website and e-mail support. They also offer WhatsApp support by chatting with a counsellor through 0613863803.

Question:

(Last edited: Thursday, 25 February 2021, 8:33 AM)
Answer:

The 10-digit V-number is indicated at the bottom of the residence permit. This number is after the letters VNR. Your V-number is also indicated on correspondence that you receive from the IND. You will only receive this number after your application has been approved by the visa department and is received by the IND.

Question:

Insurance Reimbursements: How can I get reimbursements from my insurance for my medical expenses?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 11 August 2020, 2:51 PM)
Answer:

International students have to pay for their medical bills before they can approach the insurance company for reimbursements. This means that for all medical appointments, students have to pay for it first, then, they can submit request for reimbursements (or claims) at the insurance company's website. Make sure you have the receipt for the payment of your medical bills. You may need to upload this receipt as proof of payment.

For AON insurance, paid bills can be reimbursed at the website: https://www.aonstudentinsurance.com/students/en/claims/.

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.
