Question:

Class Attendance: Whom can I contact if I cannot attend the classes?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 18 August 2020, 11:09 AM)
Answer:

Due to the current situation, attendance requirement will not be re-introduced; however, we will maintain the participation requirement for taught modules. We will ensure that teachers make the 'participation' manageable without increasing the study load but adding to the learning experience. Please refer to the respective module online areas for further instructions on participation requirements.


Question:

Class Participation Requirements: Is it necessary/compulsory to participate in class participation activities when doing a retake?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 18 August 2020, 11:16 AM)
Answer:

Yes, it is compulsory to fulfil all standard module requirements including online class participation set for block 6 & 7 delivery if:

1) the previous grade is below 4.0 or

2) previously it was a Type 1 exam, i.e. written exam. 

Thus, if the previous exam is a Type 2 exam and the grade is higher than 4.0, then the student can upload the final assignment as retake submission on or before the exam submission deadline.



Question:

Insurance: If I have arranged a Dutch basic health insurance for myself, how do I cancel the current AON insurance arranged by Wittenborg?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 19 August 2020, 2:45 PM)
Answer:

If your current AON insurance has been arranged by Wittenborg and you have now arranged insurance by yourself, we can cancel the AON insurance for you upon your request. This request will only be taken into consideration if you can provide proof that your new insurance has already started. Please fill in this webform, so that our Registrar Department can cancel your current AON insurance. The results of this form are processed every Monday and Thursday of the week. You will receive a confirmation of cancellation of your insurance by email. If you inform us of the cancellation of your insurance before the expiry date, you might be entitled to a refund based on the time remaining before the expiry. You can download the refund form (interactive Word Document) attached below to this FAQ, complete it, and upload it along with your new insurance certificate in the webform.

Question:

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

(Last edited: Tuesday, 25 August 2020, 6:53 AM)
Answer:

An internship is a compulsory module and is an essential part of your study programme, while a part-time job is an additional extracurricular option. You will be assigned a company supervisor who will monitor your progress throughout the internet. The company supervisor will update the Work Placement Coordinator of your progress from time to time. You will also be assessed at the end of your internship and the grade will be included in your results report. As for part-time job, there is no assessment and it is strictly your own personal undertaking.

Take note that you will not be allowed to present your final thesis if you have not passed your internship or WP module.

Yes. Your internship will officially and legally start only if you have completed the application procedure and it has been agreed and signed by the university.


Question:

Internship/Work Placement: I can register for internship during study or is it possible even after study?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 26 August 2020, 3:36 PM)
Answer:

A student is allowed to register for internship only when he/she is still registered at the university. This internship or work placement is one of the compulsory modules that student needs to pass before working on the final thesis. Therefore, one can do the internship only during the study and not afterwards.


Question:

Internship/Work Placement: I have received an internship offer from a company. What should I do now?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 26 August 2020, 3:36 PM)
Answer:

As soon as you have received an offer of internship from an employer, you have to complete the following process:
1. Get a signed internship contract from the employer.
2. Register for the work placement module using the enrolment key.
3. Complete and submit the online Work Placement Request form via the link below:
You also need to upload several documents together with the form.
4. A downloadable Nuffic agreement template is attached. The form must be filled and signed by you and your employer.
5. Submit the original Nuffic agreement hard copy to External Relations, or digitally via email to externalrelations@wittenborg.eu or upload it together with the online Work Placement Request Form.
6. You may start your internship upon completion of the above steps.

Note:
You are not allowed to start your internship without the signed Nuffic agreement. Any work hours prior to the signed Nuffic agreement will not count for the hours necessary to fulfil this work placement module.
More importantly working without a signed Nuffic agreement or a work permit is considered illegal in the Netherlands. Wittenborg will not be responsible for any legal issues arising in this case.
