Question:

Travel to Netherlands: Can I still travel to the Netherlands during the corona crisis?

(Last edited: Friday, 5 February 2021, 9:33 AM)
Answer:

At the moment, due to Covid19, the Netherlands has strict conditions for those who wish to travel to the country. 

These measures do not apply to:

  • Holders of an MVV or Dutch residence permit, regardless of the purpose of the residence.
  • 3rd-country nationals in possession of a residence permit from a Schengen or EU member state.
  • Holders of a residence permit as long-term residents.

You are requested to follow the link https://www.government.nl/topics/coronavirus-covid-19/visiting-the-netherlands-from-abroad/negative-test-result-and-declaration/travellers-from-outside-eu-and-schengen-countries in order to keep yourself updated with the latest rules in place during the ongoing Corona pandemic.

Wittenborg University still continues the procedure of visa application as normal.


Question:

Travel to Netherlands: When can I book my flight tickets for travelling to the Netherlands?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 30 June 2020, 8:33 AM)
Answer:

Do not confirm your travel booking until the visa has been obtained. However, as soon as the visa is received successfully, students MUST inform Wittenborg of their travel arrangements in order to arrange the accommodation and other legal registration procedures. Please arrive shortly before the start of the Wittenborg Introduction Week.

Students must bring their original birth certificate in English while travelling to the Netherlands. If it is in a different language, please arrange for a legalised translation in English. The birth certificate (both original and translation) must be stamped by the Foreign Ministry of your home country.



Question:

Travel: I am a new student. How can I travel in the Netherlands?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 30 June 2020, 8:36 AM)
Answer:

The Netherlands is a small country and its size makes it easy to get around.

While it is extremely easy to use public transport to get around the Netherlands, it is most well known for bicycles. Bike rentals here are easy and can be rented for as little as €10 EUR ($11 USD) per day. You may have to pay a deposit, which is refunded once you return the bike undamaged.

Some of the other common and cheaper modes of travel are:

  • Train - Due to the country's small size you can reach all major destinations within 2.5 hours within the country. Click on https://www.ns.nl/en for more information on train schedules and tickets or seasonal passes.
  • Bus - Another affordable way to get around the Netherlands.

The OV-chip card



Question:

Travelling to the university: How can I reach the university campus in Apeldoorn easily?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 30 June 2020, 8:37 AM)
Answer:

Most of the Wittenborg student housing/dorms are within a radius of 2 km of the university and Apeldoorn has an excellent public transport system. If you are used to cycling, you can buy or rent a bicycle. Second-hand bicycles are available for less than €100.


Question:

Tuberculosis (TB) Test: Do I need to take a TB test?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 30 June 2020, 8:42 AM)
Answer:

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.

Note: 

Please complete the referral form before you make an appointment. Here is the link: https://ind.nl/en/forms/7604.pdf



Question:

Tuition Fee: Do I have to pay full tuition fee to Wittenborg until block 8 if I am following single degree Brighton or Double degree Brighton?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 16 September 2020, 7:51 PM)
Answer:

If you are a double degree student and has just started the double degree programme, you will need at least a full year to graduate. This is because the modules from Brighton are spread across the year, and Brighton does not work with the block system, so you cannot graduate earlier. Even if your classes end in June and you have handed in your thesis, you will still be registered as a student. You will officially graduate only when all the results are published, which will be in July/August. Therefore you will be invoiced until block 8.

If you are following a single degree Brighton programme, you still need to pay the full tuition fee to us until block 8. This is because in order to follow the Brighton program you have to be fully registered at Wittenborg officially and legally as a student. The modules are also co-taught by Wittenborg and Brighton. The annual tuition fee for both single degree and double degree is the same so whichever degree you are following, you will pay the same fee.


Question:

Tuition Fees: Do I need to pay the tuition fees during an internship?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 30 June 2020, 8:44 AM)
Answer:

It is important to note that internships are part of the education programme. Therefore, yes, as long as you are registered at the university, all financial requirements need to be fulfilled.

Question:

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

(Last edited: Thursday, 19 November 2020, 10:11 AM)
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: Thursday, 19 November 2020, 10:12 AM)
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 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:

Turnitin: How to access the Turnitin Guide

(Last edited: Friday, 18 September 2020, 1:59 PM)

All students are required to submit their written reports/assignments/exams through the Turnitin plagiarism software. This is considered part of the formal submission requirements.

Turnitin is used by Wittenborg University of Applied Science to detect cases of plagiarism. The software compares the writing used within any document to other sources, for instance, websites on the Internet, journal articles, books, and other student work from other universities. Further details of the Turnitin submission process are provided during Wittenborg Introduction Week.

In the attached document you will see the detailed guide.

Question:

Visa Collection: How can I pick up my visa?

(Last edited: Monday, 20 April 2020, 9:18 AM)
Answer:

Please contact the local embassy/consulate directly for an appointment via their website or by e-mail, and at the same time inform Wittenborg of the progress. This appointment can be a document collection procedure, therefore, students need to prepare all original and copies of required documents in advance (including all the documents which are also sent to Wittenborg).

Our Admissions Team will inform students by email which embassy/consulate they need to attend and will send the MVV Issue form beforehand.

A complete list of Dutch embassies and consulates around the world can be found on the Dutch Foreign Ministry website:

http://www.rijksoverheid.nl/onderwerpen/ambassades-consulaten-en-overige-vertegenwoordigingen#ref-minbuza.

Students should bring the following documents to the embassy:

  • TEV approval letter in Dutch (translation not necessary). 
  • Copies of all the documents (to be left with the embassy) that you sent to us along with your original documents.
