Question:

Student Account: Who can I contact in case of loss of access to my student account?

(Last edited: Thursday, 19 November 2020, 10:09 AM)
Answer:

If a student’s account denies access, this can have multiple reasons. Below the 3 most common reasons are highlighted.

  • Password change. Students have to regularly change their password to secure their account.
  • Inactivity for a longer period of time. If a student does not access his school account for a few months, the account will be blocked. The account has to be reset. The Wittenborg Front Desk can do this - send an email to have your account reset.
  • Outstanding invoice tuition fee. If a student has not yet paid the tuition fees, an account will be blocked. After receiving the payment, the account will be reactivated.

For further information ask the Front Desk for support. This can be done either via email to frontdesk@wittenborg.eu or contact Helpdesk or by going to the Front Desk in person.

Question:

Student Housing: How can I find my own house in Apeldoorn?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 31 August 2021, 10:10 AM)
Answer:

Finding a house can be quite challenging in the Netherlands and the best way is to start by enquiring among fellow students or house mates. If you stay in the student housing at Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences, it is best advised to start looking for a house well before the end of your current student housing package. You will find available housing or local real estate companies details on websites or by just walking into a real estate agent company.

There are a huge number of property websites where you can begin the search for your new home. Popular national sites include:

There are some other ways present to help you in your house search:

  • Newspapers: All Dutch papers have a property section. De Telegraaf has a housing supplement on Wednesdays (in Dutch)
  • Network: engage your network to keep an eye out for new properties
  • Looking around a location: as well as getting a feel for the area, you can look out for Te Koop (for sale) signs on interesting properties.

Question:

Submission Deadline: My submission deadline is at 16:00. How late can I submit my assignment on Turnitin?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 10 February 2021, 12:37 PM)
Answer:

 

Submissions of assignments just a few minutes before the deadline can be a risky issue. This is because it can take a few minutes before the system registers your uploaded work. Therefore, the student must always upload all assignments with sufficient time left in order for the work to be stamped in time. Submitting with sufficient time will also allow the student to correct any mistakes in the assignment.  Consigning submissions at least 24 hours before the actual deadline may be a safe measure and can prevent any last-minute stress or failure of submissions.

Note:

For any technical reason for non-submission or failure to upload assignments, please contact your teacher and Helpdesk.

Question:

Submission Deadline: What should I do if I miss my submission deadline?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 24 June 2020, 8:42 AM)
Answer:

Contact your process tutor as well as the module teacher in the case of missing a submission deadline. They will decide on the next course of action. You cannot submit your work once the submission due deadline has passed. 


Question:

Support English: Where can I find information to help me understand about Support English (SE) and Support English Assessment (SEA)?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 21 October 2020, 12:32 PM)
Answer:

Support English Assessment (SEA) is a mandatory Diagnostic Writing Test that every new student has to take. The purpose of this test is to recognise, at an early stage, the students who exhibit weak writing skills. Students who fail this test are then directed to join the Support English module in order to raise their English standards to enable them to take the Academic English module. 

Wittenborg's Support English portal can be visited via your phone, tablet or computer. You have to enrol in the module using the enrolment key. For Apeldoorn campus, please click this link: https://www.wittenborg-online.com/course/view.php?id=1191. For Amsterdam campus, please click this link: https://www.wittenborg-online.com/course/view.php?id=1199.

Question:

Travel during Corona: Can I go back to my country during the ongoing corona crisis?

(Last edited: Monday, 29 June 2020, 4:34 PM)
Answer:

You can follow the modules online from the Netherlands or another country. However, it is the student’s responsibility if he/she wishes to travel to the high-risk countries/areas at the moment, as the university and Dutch authorities have highly discouraged doing so. During the crisis there will be NO study-intermission option offered, nor can the tuition fee be frozen in such a situation. As long as the student is registered at the university and IND, the financial requirements must be fulfilled.



Question:

Travel Information: Do I need to inform the university if I have travelled back to my country?

(Last edited: Monday, 29 June 2020, 4:35 PM)
Answer:

Yes, students who have travelled back to their home country and/or have specific questions for their process tutors on study progress, should fill in the Form (http://tiny.cc/y6nslz). The process tutor will get back to you as soon as possible
