Question:

#### Calculating GPA from Osiris

(Last edited: Friday, 31 May 2024, 10:01 AM)

To obtain your GPA, you may access it through the student portal.

Step 1: Go to OSIRIS

Step 2: Select "Progress"

On the tabs above, select the "Progress" tab.

Under that section, go to "Study Progress Overview"

Step 3: Filter Results:

Select the option "Only print test results that count".

Ensure you only include each module once, removing any duplicates.

Step 6: Count the Modules

Determine how many unique modules you have completed and cleared (passed with a grade above 5.5).

Divide the total sum of the grades by the number of unique modules.

Example Calculation

• BL11: 7.0
• BL12: 8.0
• FIN11: 6.5
• FIN22: 7.5
• Duplicate of BL11 (should be removed)
• 7.0 (BL11) + 8.0 (BL12) + 6.5 (FIN11) + 7.5 (FIN22) = 29.0
• Count the Modules:
• 4 unique modules (BL11, BL12, FIN11, FIN22)
• Calculate the GPA:
• GPA = 29.0 / 4 = 7.25

The GPA would be 7.25.

Question:

#### Can a student study and graduate with two specialisations at the same time?

(Last edited: Friday, 20 May 2022, 3:35 PM)

Students who are enrolled in a programme with a given specialisation, will earn ONLY one degree with ONE specialisation.

Students, who would like to attend and complete additional modules from other specialisations would do it at their own discretion. Students can take as many additional modules as they wish. However, the diploma will only mention one specialisation.

All additional modules that the student has completed and passed will be added and will be visible on the transcript only. Students will be able to promote these additional modules to their future employers via the transcript of records.

Question:

#### Can I register myself with my family/friend address to receive my BSN number?

(Last edited: Thursday, 17 March 2022, 9:43 AM)

Yes, if you stay at your family/friend's home in the Netherlands, you can register at the same city hall. For this,  you must have a written declaration of consent from the person who is living at said address.

Question:

#### Can students participate lessons online?

(Last edited: Friday, 26 August 2022, 8:44 PM)

No lessons are facilitated online from academic year 2022-2023.

Wittenborg is an experiential institute, thus, students need to physically interact with each other. The teachers will conduct all lessons in the classrooms and the study materials will be available for students via the online course areas on Wittenborg-Online, as usual. Note that no lessons will be streamed live.

At Wittenborg, students signed up for a programme that is planned and offered with lessons, projects, and other educational activities delivered in-campus on full-time basis. Therefore, all students are expected to effectively participate in the classes and fulfil all study requirements.

If you have travelled outside the Netherlands for mitigating reasons (e.g medical) please note that you are eligible to request for Leave of absence/study freeze. You can find more information on this in the FAQs. https://www.wittenborg-online.com/mod/glossary/showentry.php?eid=848

Question:

#### Can students use paraphrasing tools/services for assignment development? Is it considered Academic Malpractice?

(Last edited: Friday, 19 March 2021, 4:23 PM)

Online lessons since Pandemic times have changed our habituality. A common challenge faced by all education institutions around the world is the integrity and validity of the online examinations and assessments. Various software, online platforms and individual service providers have established themselves on paraphrasing existing text and ghost writing as business models. Note that these attempts are categorised as “Academic Malpractice” in the Education and Examination Guide (EEG).

Turn-it-in has implemented a new algorithm in their latest upgrade. This upgrade has improved the similarity function and the detection of the usage of paraphrasing tools/services amongst many other additional features to support the examiners identify these attempts.

We would like to urge all student to avoid using these tools when developing their work as it is important for you all to put the required efforts to ensure you have obtained the required knowledge and skills for each study component.

Question:

#### Change of Address deadline: I have checked out from student housing. Do I have to register my new address immediately?

(Last edited: Thursday, 13 August 2020, 2:19 PM)

1. If you move within or to the municipality of Apeldoorn, you are legally obliged to inform the city hall.

a.       Firstly, please send us your new address by writing to frontdesk@wittenborg.eu

b.       Secondly, you need to change your address online with your DigiD code.  Completing this process is your own responsibility.

The following link is the page on the city hall website, which informs how to change your address online.

Note:

You must inform the municipality of your change of address anywhere between 4 weeks prior to moving and 5 days after moving. The moving date that you provide will be treated as the day on which your address changed. If you inform the municipality more than 5 days after moving, the date on which you inform the municipality will be treated as the moving date. Municipalities can impose a fine of up to €325 if you do not inform them in time of important changes to your personal information.

Question:

#### Changing the location to collect the Residence Permit: Can I change my appointment to collect my Residence Permit to a different city?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 4 April 2023, 3:36 PM)

We highly recommend the students to pick up the residence permit from the IND office as scheduled because changing the location can take a long time and is often not accepted by the IND. Even if accepted, this might delay the completion of your registration requirements.

Question:

#### Charging Equipments: How can I charge my laptop or mobile phone once I arrive in the Netherlands?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 4 April 2023, 3:40 PM)

Travel with a mobile phone, tablet or laptop can be difficult without the right adapter. Make sure you bring a European adapter from home, or buy one at any of the local shops once you arrive in the Netherlands. In the Netherlands the power plugs and sockets are of type C and F. The standard voltage is 230 V and the standard frequency is 50 Hz.

Please visit https://www.power-plugs-sockets.com/netherlands-holland/ for more details on using the right power adapter in the Netherlands.

Question:

#### Check Out Notice: Should I give prior notice of my intention to check out?

(Last edited: Friday, 22 May 2020, 11:42 AM)

Yes. Residents must give at least four weeks’ notice in advance to Wittenborg Housing of their intended check-out date and time, so a mutually suitable pre-check-out time can be agreed by both parties. The intended check-out date and time can be on or before the last date of the housing package.

Question:

#### Check-in Rules: I have moved into Wittenborg student housing recently. What should I do next?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 16 June 2020, 5:45 PM)

At check-in, residents are provided with an inventory checklist, the Check-In Form*. Please use this document to report any issues within your apartment and submit it signed to the front office within 3 working days of your arrival. If this document is not submitted, it is taken as confirmation that all items, and dormitory, as set out in the inventory checklist, are present and in good condition. Residents must pay for any damages incurred outside normal ‘wear and tear’.

*This list is used again when checking out. The items on the back of the form must be present when checking out. All missing items are to be paid for by the leaving student. The personal items on the list must be removed from the room.

#### Contacting Staff - How can I communicate with the Wittenborg teachers and staff?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 10 February 2021, 11:57 AM)

You can communicate with Wittenborg teachers and staff via Email, Teams or Phone. Teachers usually provide their email addresses to students during the first lesson, so do take down their email addresses when given. Additionally, you can find email addresses of Wittenborg staff in your Outlook address book. You can also find the teachers/staff by typing their names in Teams and you can directly communicate with them.

If you are unsure, you can always contact front desk for help at frontdesk@wittenborg.eu.

Question:

#### Cost of Living: What is the cost of living in Apeldoorn?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 5 April 2023, 10:17 AM)

The cost of living as a student in the Netherlands is estimated to be around €800 to €1,100 per month according to the Study in NL website, an initiative by Nuffic.

These main costs include:

• Accommodation
• Food
• Transport

Tuition fees do not form part of living costs.

Apeldoorn versus Amsterdam

Experience has shown that students living and studying in Apeldoorn tend to spend less than those in Amsterdam, where cost of living is higher. This amount is needed to cover daily expenses, meals, accommodation costs, insurance, study books, etc. This estimate does not include tuition fees and unforeseen costs and should be used as a general indication of the costs of living. How much money you will actually need depends on your lifestyle. The costs for housing, for example, may differ considerably. Also, if you plan to travel during your stay, you will obviously need more money.
