Question:

Submission Deadline: My submission deadline is at 16:00. How late can I submit my assignment on Turnitin?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 10 February 2021, 12:37 PM)
Answer:

 

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.

Note:

For any technical reason for non-submission or failure to upload assignments, please contact your teacher and Helpdesk.

Submission Deadline: What should I do if I miss my submission deadline?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 24 June 2020, 8:42 AM)
Answer:

Question:

(Last edited: Tuesday, 14 July 2020, 9:54 AM)
Answer:

SEA has no direct connection to the Academic English classes of the PDP1 or PDP 2 modules. Whether pass or fail in SEA, students must attend Academic English classes, a component of PDP – entry points only in Bocks 1 and 5.



Question:

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

(Last edited: Wednesday, 21 October 2020, 12:32 PM)
Answer:

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. For Apeldoorn campus, please click this link: https://www.wittenborg-online.com/course/view.php?id=1191.

Question:

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

(Last edited: Monday, 29 June 2020, 4:34 PM)
Answer:

You can follow the modules online from the Netherlands or another country. However, it is the student’s responsibility if he/she wishes to travel to the high-risk countries/areas at the moment, as the university and Dutch authorities have highly discouraged doing so. During the crisis there will be NO study-intermission option offered, nor can the tuition fee be frozen in such a situation. As long as the student is registered at the university and IND, the financial requirements must be fulfilled.



Question:

Travel during Corona: Can I travel outside the Netherlands during the ongoing crisis?

(Last edited: Monday, 29 June 2020, 4:34 PM)
Answer:

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.


Question:

Travel Information: Do I need to inform the university if I have travelled back to my country?

(Last edited: Monday, 29 June 2020, 4:35 PM)
Answer:

Yes, students who have travelled back to their home country and/or have specific questions for their process tutors on study progress, should fill in the Form (http://tiny.cc/y6nslz). The process tutor will get back to you as soon as possible
