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

Turnitin Upload: Why does the upload status show "processing" even after I have submitted my work?
If you are getting a status report "processing", it means your work has yet to be checked by Turnitin. Therefore, the work has been submitted but not yet checked. During the first 3 submissions, it takes anywhere between a
few seconds to a few hours to see your report. It will take 24 hours for the 4th submission onward to reflect the report.
You can write to email@example.com or put a request to Helpdesk to share any further concerns.
