Question:

Is the MEEs compulsory? Who should sit for the MEEs?

(Last edited: Monday, 3 July 2023, 11:06 AM)
Answer:

This MEE is COMPULSORY for all students who started the programme in September 2022, depending on their eligibility. For students who started before September 2022, it is optional for them to take this exam.

Basic Requirements For bachelor’s students:

· There is a total of 3 compulsory MEEs: Phase 1 MEE, Phase 2 MEE and Phase 3 MEE.

· Students are NOT ALLOWED to start any Phase 3 modules unless they have at least completed the Phase 1 MEE.

· Students are NOT ALLOWED to submit their Graduation Assignment/Final project (GA/FP) unless they have completed both the Phase 1 MEE and Phase 2 MEE.

For master’s students:

· There is only 1 compulsory Master MEE to be taken at the end of Semester 2.

· Students are NOT ALLOWED to submit their GA/FP before completing the Master MEE

Question:

Leave of Absence/Study Freeze: Can I take a leave of absence from my studies?

(Last edited: Monday, 22 January 2024, 11:50 AM)
Answer:

Students can receive an exemption from the obligation to study upon application for a leave of absence for one lesson block, or a maximum of two consecutive lesson blocks. A leave of absence request must be submitted at least before the start of the Project Week (W3) prior to the lesson block for which the leave of absence is taken. For example, if the student wants to take a leave of absence in Block Oct, he/she has to send the request before Week 3 of Block Sep. Please contact the Registrar Office at registrar@wittenborg.eu. 

As part of the application for a leave of absence, student will be required to demonstrate the grounds for the request. Student will not lose his/her place to study at WUAS during the leave of absence period and may subsequently continue the study at the end of the leave period.

During the leave of absence, the student remains a registered student at WUAS, and the study visa (if applicable), remains valid during this period. Additionally, as the registration is continuous, the student remains eligible for any DUO study finance/loan during the leave of absence period. For this reason, there is neither a freeze of payment obligations nor refund of the tuition fees.

In case the period exceeds two lesson blocks, Wittenborg will initiate the deregistration process. If student requires a study visa to study in the Netherlands, this means that the study visa will become invalid and the student no longer has the right to stay in the Netherlands based on study at WUAS. If the student wants to restart his/her study, the student has to inform the Registrar Office and he/she will be informed of the formal procedure that needs to be taken.

For more information on leave of absence, please refer to the EEG Part 12c.

Question:

Living Expenses: How can I receive the monthly living expenses initially paid along with the main invoice?

(Last edited: Friday, 5 March 2021, 2:03 PM)
Answer:

Step1: Upon arriving in the Netherlands, you are required to register yourself at the Municipality you live in. Then, you receive the BSN, which is a pre-requisite to open the bank account.    

Step2: You open a bank account in the Netherlands.  

Step3: You provide the Finance Department or Registry Office (registrar@wittenborg.eu) your bank account number and the name in which the account was opened, on or before the 20th of the month. 

Living expenses will be paid on the 1st of each month upon receiving the bank details on time in the previous month. Delayed information will lead to a delay of commencement of payment by one month.

Question:

Living in Amsterdam: How can I find student housing in Amsterdam?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 20 June 2023, 2:21 PM)
Answer:

Wittenborg is continuously looking for possibilities to support students with finding suitable accommodation in Amsterdam. However, the responsibility for finding a room in Amsterdam ultimately lies with the student. Finding a place to live in Amsterdam can be quite a challenge; therefore, we recommend you to look for your new home as early as possible. It is also possible to opt for Student Housing in Apeldoorn. The distance between the Amsterdam campus and Apeldoorn is around 1.5 hours by train and costs around 17 euro one way (www.ns.nl). 

We recommend students to few companies/organizations who can help students in their accommodation. You can find detailed information via Wittenborg main website here. Amsterdam Student Housing (wittenborg.eu)

It is also possible to opt for Student Housing in Apeldoorn, but no later than one-month prior notice needs to be given to the Student Housing Team.

Question:

MBA/MBM Students: Is there a deadline to register for Project Weeks?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 8 February 2023, 1:50 PM)
Answer:

Yes, we have created Project week registrations for each block in the course area. Once you have enrolled yourself in the Project week course area, you would be able to see the Registration link. The deadline is Monday of Lesson Week 1 at 16:00. If you missed the deadline to register yourself, you will not be allowed to participate in the Project week for that block.

Please note that enrollment and registration for project weeks are not the same. You can only do the registration after enrolling in to the course area.

Question:

Meeting Invitation: Why the error message "undelivered" has been sent while responding to a meeting invitation?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 15 March 2022, 9:08 AM)
Answer:

If a meeting has been created with any field (Subject, title, or message body) empty, then the recipient will receive the automated error message in reply that their "response was not delivered" after responding to the meeting invitation. However, this may not affect their response and their response may still be recorded. Also, if they have accepted the meeting using their phones, this issue might occur.

In such cases, it is always recommended to confirm with the recipient after, if they have received your response.

Question:

Mitigating Circumstances: What shall I do if I missed the assignment submission deadline?

(Last edited: Monday, 22 January 2024, 11:56 AM)
Answer:

Deadlines for submission of assignments must not be missed. No extension of deadlines are permitted outside the exam weeks. If due to exceptional circumstances, you are unable to meet the deadline, which prevents you from graduating on time, you may request an extension via Mitigating Circumstances request form
 (Retake of Remaining Module/Mitigating Circumstances Form (office.com)).
Supporting evidence will normally be required when applications for extensions are made, such as a medical certificate, doctor’s letter, death certificate, etc. The Exam Board is the only body that can authorise extensions. 

Mitigating Circumstances (during standard exam weeks):

- This form should be submitted at least 3 working days before the exam/deadline.
- This form is not applicable for Project Week/Graduation Assignment/Final Project/Work Placement Report deadline extensions.

Question:

Module Enrolment Key: What is the Module Enrolment Key and where can I find it?

(Last edited: Friday, 28 May 2021, 10:27 AM)
Answer:

Each module that you take has an online area on the Moodle where the lecturers share the presentations, assignments and all other related contents. In order to have access to this module online area, you need to enrol or register yourself. To enrol in each module, you need the enrolment key. Take note that each module has its own unique enrolment key. Please refer to the attached PDF document on how to find the enrolment keys of the various modules and how to enrol/register in the respective modules.

Take note of the following:

1) Please do not enrol in a module that you are not planning to attend. If you have accidentally enrolled yourself in the wrong module, you can unenroll by clicking the 'gear' button at the top right hand corner of the page and click 'unenroll me'. Or find the 'Administration' section on the right side of the page and click 'unenrol' me. 

2) You will be unenrolled if you are not active within the module area for a period of 3 weeks.

3) Languages, Project Weeks and PDPs modules, can be found under University Wide Modules instead of the specific Programme Modules.

4) Foundation and Pre-Master courses can be found under Preparation Modules.
