  • For an internship in the NetherlandsDutch law requires applicants to be either a European Citizen OR to be currently enrolled in an educational institution as a student. It should be noted that after graduation, you will in general no longer be able to take an internship in the Netherlands. Your Work Placement ending date must be within the period of your registration at Wittenborg. Please make sure you have an up-to-date Registration Letter which covers your Work Placement duration.

Question:

Leave of Absence/Study Freeze: Can I take a leave of absence from my studies?

(Last edited: Monday, 28 February 2022, 2:38 PM)
Answer:

Students can receive an exemption from the obligation to study upon application for a leave of absence for one lesson block, or a maximum of two consecutive lesson blocks. A leave of absence request must be submitted at least before the start of the Project Week (W3) prior to the lesson block for which the leave of absence is taken. For example, if the student wants to take a leave of absence in Block 2, he/she has to send the request before Week 3 of Block 1. Please contact the Registrar Office at registrar@wittenborg.eu. 

As part of the application for a leave of absence, student will be required to demonstrate the grounds for the request. Student will not lose his/her place to study at WUAS during the leave of absence period and may subsequently continue the study at the end of the leave period.

During the leave of absence, the student remains a registered student at WUAS, and the study visa (if applicable), remains valid during this period. Additionally, as the registration is continuous, the student remains eligible for any DUO study finance/loan during the leave of absence period. For this reason, there is neither a freeze of payment obligations nor refund of the tuition fees.

In case the period exceeds two lesson blocks, Wittenborg will initiate the deregistration process. If student requires a study visa to study in the Netherlands, this means that the study visa will become invalid and the student no longer has the right to stay in the Netherlands based on study at WUAS. If the student wants to restart his/her study, the student has to inform the Registrar Office and he/she will be informed of the formal procedure that needs to be taken.

For more information on leave of absence, please refer to the EEG Part 12c.

Question:

Living Expenses: How can I receive the monthly living expenses initially paid along with the main invoice?

(Last edited: Friday, 5 March 2021, 2:03 PM)
Answer:

Step1: Upon arriving in the Netherlands, you are required to register yourself at the Municipality you live in. Then, you receive the BSN, which is a pre-requisite to open the bank account.    

Step2: You open a bank account in the Netherlands.  

Step3: You provide the Finance Department or Registry Office (registrar@wittenborg.eu) your bank account number and the name in which the account was opened, on or before the 20th of the month. 

Living expenses will be paid on the 1st of each month upon receiving the bank details on time in the previous month. Delayed information will lead to a delay of commencement of payment by one month.

Question:

Mitigating Circumstances: What shall I do if I missed the assignment submission deadline?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 6 April 2022, 12:17 PM)
Answer:

Deadlines for submission of assignments must not be missed. No extension of deadlines are permitted outside the exam weeks. If due to exceptional circumstances, you are unable to meet the deadline, which prevents you from graduating on time, you may request an extension via Mitigating Circumstances Request Form. Supporting evidence will normally be required when applications for extensions are made, such as a medical certificate, doctor’s letter, death certificate, etc. The Exam Board is the only body that can authorise extensions. 

Mitigating Circumstances (during standard exam weeks):

- This form should be submitted at least 3 working days before the exam/deadline.
- This form is not applicable for Project Week/Graduation Assignment/Final Project/Work Placement Report deadline extensions.
