Question:

Turnitin Assignment Submissions: What are my responsibilities as a student while submitting a file to Turnitin?

(Last edited: Friday, 14 January 2022, 4:39 PM)
Answer:

 

It is your responsibility to ensure that the electronic submission of your work is successful and completed on time.

 

  1. Different assessments may have different compulsory requirements that will activate the upload link. These requirements are visible to students in the course area. Failure to fulfil these criteria will not permit you to submit your work
  2. We strongly recommend that the final submission to be done at least 30 minutes before the deadline. Leaving the submission for the last minutes could result in failure to submit your work. If you’re not sure what the deadline date and time is click on the submission link where the details will be displayed
  3. In case of technical issues, please contact Helpdesk only.
  4. Make sure you are submitting the correct file type. We recommend to upload word files to Turn-it-in.
  5. Once you have submitted your assignment, make sure the submission was successful. You will receive an email confirmation if the submission to Turn-it-in was successful (in your university email address). You can also click on the submission link to ensure if the file listed/visible is the correct file.

 

Not knowing what is expected of you is not an excuse for a late submission, make sure you understand what to do, well before the deadline and read the Assignment Submission Help provided.

Question:

Turnitin Sign In: How do I sign in into Turnitin?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 30 June 2020, 8:46 AM)
Answer:

You can make all Turnitin submissions on the module area in wittenborg-online and you do not need to sign in separately. It is your teacher's responsibility to place the Turnitin submission area inside the module. Always ask the teacher/lecturer in case of doubt or inability to find the upload area.


Question:

Turnitin Submissions: Why can't I upload my assignment on Turnitin while there is still sufficient time for the deadline?

(Last edited: Friday, 14 January 2022, 4:40 PM)
Answer:

There could be errors in the upload area. Should you face this difficulty, contact your module teacher as soon as possible, as well as Helpdesk.


Question:

Turnitin Upload: Why does the upload status show "processing" even after I have submitted my work?

(Last edited: Friday, 14 January 2022, 4:41 PM)
Answer:

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 to 48 hours for the 4th submission onward to reflect the report.

Note:

You can write to ict@wittenborg.eu or put a request to Helpdesk to share any further concerns.

Question:

What is Basisregistratie Personen (BRP)?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 1 March 2022, 9:13 AM)
Answer:

If you have moved to the Netherlands and intend to live here for more than 4 months, you must register yourself in the Basisregistratie Personen – BRP (Personal Records Database). You can do this by visiting the City Hall of your municipality. 

Similarly, if you move to another municipality in the Netherlands, you must notify the new municipality of your change of address.

Once you register in the BRP, you will receive your BSN.

Failing to do these might result in withdrawal of study visa by the Dutch Immigration Office (IND). In such a case you will be required to leave the country and apply for a new MVV (entry visa) from your home country to continue with your studies. Eventually, it will cost you time and money.

Important note: You must inform Registry Office (registrar@wittenborg.eu) whenever you change your address within the Netherlands. The same applies when you are planning to deregister from the City Hall and leave the country for a temporary period of time or permanently.

Question:

Work Placement: Where can I find the work placement information?

(Last edited: Monday, 31 August 2020, 2:37 PM)
Answer:

Question:

Work Placement/Internship and Part-Time Jobs: Is there any difference between internships and part-time jobs?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 2 December 2020, 2:38 PM)
Answer:

A Work Placement (WP) is a curriculum module for all Bachelor students and is an essential part of your study programme, however, a part-time job is an additional extracurricular option. During the WP, you will be assigned a company supervisor who will monitor your progress throughout the internship. The company supervisor will update the Work Placement Coordinator at the university of your progress periodically. You will also be assessed at the end of your internship by the company supervisor and the grade will be included in your WP final mark. As for a part-time job, there is no assessment and it is purely your own personal undertaking. Students can take a part-time job while doing a Work Placement/Internship.

Take note that you will not be allowed to present your Graduation Assignment if you have not passed your Work Placement/Internship module.


Question:

Work Placement/Internship: Can I replace Work Placement credits with other modules?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 1 September 2021, 3:39 PM)
Answer:

Replacement of credits is ONLY applicable for Direct Entry Final Year students. Students can take modules from phase 2 in their own specialisation and/or phase 3 modules from other specialisations to replace the Work Placement with equivalent ECs. Please notice that students cannot choose modules and specialisation across different campuses (e.g. Apeldoorn students cannot choose EBA modules offered in Amsterdam). Students must make an agreement for possible modules with their process tutor. Once the modules have been chosen, the student needs to send an email to examresults@wittenborg.eu and CC process tutor with the subject: Replace Work Placement_snumber or Replace In-company Training. List the modules with the full module name and module code in the email.



Question:

Work Placement/Internship: Can I still do an internship/WP after graduation?

(Last edited: Thursday, 29 October 2020, 5:15 PM)
Answer:

No, you cannot do an internship/work placement after graduation. For an internship in the Netherlands, Dutch 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. 


What shall I do if it's not possible to do so?
You are highly recommended to discuss your situation of the current student status and changes in the near future and come up with a feasible solution with your Internship company. And then come back to externalraltions@wittenborg.eu for paper works if your internship duration has been revised to meet the requirement.



Question:

Work Placement/Internship: Does Wittenborg provide placements for internship or do I have to find it myself?

(Last edited: Monday, 22 March 2021, 5:38 PM)
Answer:

Wittenborg has a platform where internship vacancies are published: WittenborgConnect (www.wittenborgconnect.com). However, it is the responsibility of the student to contact the internship company personally. 




Question:

Work Placement/Internship: How shall I prepare for the Work Placement if I am a direct-entry Phase 3 student?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 1 September 2021, 3:37 PM)
Answer:

Work placement is not obligatory for students with direct entry into the final phase (Phase 3). However, they must complete 15 ECs for this module, either by undertaking a standard internship as per our procedure, or they can replace these credits with other taught modules. For this they must make an agreement for possible modules with their process tutor through their study agreement.

Note:

Please refer to the Bachelor's EEG PART 7 - Work Placement Handbook Bachelor's, Page 9.

Work Placement/Internship: Is the Work Placement compulsory for master's students?

(Last edited: Thursday, 2 July 2020, 10:00 AM)
Answer:

Question:

Work Placement/Internship: What are the criteria for a qualified Work Placement_Bachelor?

(Last edited: Thursday, 20 January 2022, 9:41 AM)
Answer:

To ensure a meaningful WP, it is necessary for the internship assignment to meet the following criteria: 

• The WP provides sufficient in-house operations and ownership. 

• The work is of sufficient level, matching the level of study (HBO). 

• Creativity and intelligence levels of the student should be tested; it is intended that the student’s knowledge, understanding and skills gained during study are put into practice as part of a completed task, which is ample opportunity for direct action, ownership and responsibility. 

• Performing simple facilitating clerical/administrative work is not permitted. 

• The assignment should be challenging, that is: 

o Students should be held accountable for their analytical and problem-solving skills. 

o Students should use their skills related to searching, finding and processing information. 

o Students should use their communication skills, both written and oral. 

o Students should be given the opportunity to work independently. 

Students must do work that matches the level of training. If possible, the intern’s roles should be rotated within the organisation. 

• The content of the training has to meet the objectives of the WP programme. In relation to this, it needs to be linked to the student’s general programme of study and the student's specialisation in particular. 

• The host organisation is responsible for supervising the student and a supervisor within the organisation should be assigned to this task. This is to facilitate the introduction of the student to the internship organisation, as well as creating a process whereby the student can be mentored, trained and evaluated within the organisation. 

• Understanding and skills that students have acquired, can be applied and expanded. 

• The company and student’s role within the company are of an international character. Students are not allowed to do the WP in their country of origin, unless it is an internationally operating company. In this case, a student must state why and in what way the company has an international character. The final decision will be made by the WP Coordinator (External Relations Department). 

You should discuss these criteria with your host company to ensure that the company knows what is expected of you from the school’s perspective. It will also help you formulate your job description well. 

Take note that even if you have a formal letter of acceptance from the employer, the WP Coordinator can disapprove of the WP if it is evaluated as not meeting the requirements mentioned in this section or for any other reasons deemed necessary. WP Coordinator must also be able to verify the company and supervisor information via their website or LinkedIn. 

Students should read through all necessary information found in the EEG part 7  for their specialization.
