Residence Permit: I am from the UK. Am I exempt from applying for a residence permit in the Netherlands post Brexit?
No. As you will know, the UK left the EU on 31 January 2020. Because your right of residence has changed as a result of Brexit, you have to arrange your residence after Brexit.
The Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) has come up with
a Withdrawal Agreement with the UK. This agreement consists of a transition period from 1 February, 2020, up to and including 31 December, 2020, during which UK nationals who are already here in the Netherlands
must take action to make sure they can also stay in the Netherlands after 31
December, 2020, by submitting an application for
residence. To make sure you are ready to submit your application online, please
first take care of the next few things first:
If you have not already done so, register yourself in person in the Personal Records Database (Basisregistratie Personen or BRP) at your town hall. The IND is linked to the BRP. If you register in the BRP, the IND can get in touch with you.
It is very important that your personal details in the Personal Records Database (BRP) are correct, as based on these details the IND will send invitation letters. In this letter, the IND will invite you to submit an application for residence after 31 December, 2020. If your application is approved you will receive a (new) residence document, which you will need to continue to live, work and study in the Netherlands. The application costs €58 for adults and €31 for children under 18.

Student Housing in Apeldoorn: What types of housing options can I choose from in the university housing in Apeldoorn?
Wittenborg offers accommodation in a number of different types and places, all enjoying close proximity to the university:
Dutch or other EU-national students are encouraged to find their own accommodation; however, they can opt for Wittenborg’s own accommodation if available.
If you are a non-EU, ‘package-fee’-paying student who needs Wittenborg to arrange your study visa to be able to join us in Apeldoorn, part of your package fee is the first 4 months* of your accommodation fee, plus administration fee for new-arrival students.
You will be allocated a room in either an apartment or a house sharing a common area and all facilities, such as a bathroom, toilet, kitchen, etc., with other students, both male and female.
After the first 4 months* you are free to move out of Wittenborg accommodation and move into other housing of your choice.

Submission Deadline: My submission deadline is at 16:00. How late can I submit my assignment on Turnitin?
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.
For any technical reason for non-submission or failure to upload assignments, please contact your teacher and email@example.com.

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.
