Travel during Corona: Can I travel outside the Netherlands during the ongoing crisis?
During the ongoing Coronavirus crisis, as per the Dutch government's advice, any overseas travel must be avoided unless extremely necessary. More importantly it must be kept in mind that the current circumstances have made it even more difficult to return to the Netherlands due to strict travel blockages introduced by several countries across the globe.
The university advises students against any overseas travel until further notice.

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

During the crisis there will be NO study-intermission option offered, nor can the tuition fee be frozen in such a situation.

Tuberculosis (TB) Test: Do I need to take a TB test?
Almost all non-Dutch passport holders who will stay in the Netherlands for more than 3 months are obliged to make an appointment at GGD "Gemeentelijke Gezondheidsdienst” (Area Health Service) to undergo a checkup for TBC (Tuberculosis). Wittenborg Administration checks whether students are obliged to have the TB test or not, and you will be informed accordingly. If you live in Amsterdam, you can make an appointment on your own. If you live in another city, please let the Front Desk know and they will help you to arrange it.
Most non-EU students and students from some other countries do not need to have a tuberculosis test. You can click on the following link to find out which countries' nationals are exempt from the test https://ind.nl/Formulieren/7144.pdf
For students who live in Amsterdam, please note that you can only be seen if you have an appointment. You can call 020-555 5240 Monday to Friday, between 09:00 and 11:00, and between 13:30 and 16:30.
Please complete the referral form before you make an appointment. Here is the link: https://ind.nl/en/forms/7604.pdf

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

Question:(Last edited: Tuesday, 30 June 2020, 8:50 AM)
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or helpdesk@wittenborg to share any further concerns.
