EEG: What is the EEG and where can I find it?
The Education and Examination Guide (EEG) is the first thing you need to read before you start your classes. The EEG consists of all the crucial information you need for your studies, including handbooks on work placement, graduation assignment, academic writing, etc.
EEGs are available for each study programme and can be found in the online Moodle area (https://www.wittenborg-online.com).

EEG: Whom can I contact for clarifying doubts on the EEG?
If students have questions about a section in the EEG, they can contact their process tutor to guide them. Process tutors will be allocated by Wittenborg and during the Introduction Week, students will be informed on how to contact their process tutor, to make an appointment.

Emergency Contact: Where can I find important telephone numbers in case of emergencies?
You can find basic information about living in the Netherlands from Wittenborg-online, on your Dashboard under the title ‘Information for International Students in the Netherlands or through this link: https://www.wittenborg-online.com/enrol/index.php?id=1183
All information pertaining to your living in the Netherlands, from the time before your arrival to after you graduate can be found here. If you are staying at Wittenborg’s accommodation, the student housing information booklet placed inside your room and in the common area contains emergency numbers in case of urgent needs. This information can be found in the first page and contains numbers of Wittenborg Housing Department, Police, Fire Brigade and Hospital.
Generally, the Dutch emergency number for police, fire department and ambulance is 112. The Call Centre respondent will respond to the call and ask who you are, where the emergency takes place and what the emergency is. They will then send the right forces (police, ambulance or fire service) to the scene.
Note: Only call these numbers if the matter cannot wait another minute with the issue. The Netherlands has a strict policy on emergency numbers. It is considered a crime to unnecessarily call 112. They will charge the person who calls the emergency number for nothing.
someone needs the police for something else than an urgent crime, they can be
reached at 0900-8844. For minor
issues destined to be solved by the fire department, the phone number of the
Apeldoorn fire department is 055-548 3555.
In case of health issues, if one is not in immediate life danger, do not call 112. Call the Family doctor’s office and press 1 for emergency. They will tell you what to do next. If someone has a major health issue out of office hours, they can call the Apeldoorn Huisartsenpost. The telephone number is 0900 - 600 9000. They will give you instructions on what to do next.
Note: Do not go to the emergency room/hospital without calling the Huisartsenpost first. This will not be covered by the insurance and it will take a lot of time before they can help.

Exam Type1: What are the new changes to exam type 1 in 2020-21?
Type 1 assessments are closed or open book examinations held in school under invigilation. After having experimented with online exam type 1 examinations, uploaded answers and the management of these during the retake weeks of block 8 (which were held at the end of August) we have identified various issues with organizing a traditional open book exam online.
Therefore, we have decided to implement the following for the complete academic year 2020-21:
Type 2 assignments have no changes to the standard assessment as described in the relevant EEG and module guides.

Exams: Is there any difference between the Type 1 and Type 2 exams?
Type 1 exams are the written exams which are traditional classroom-based exams, where students are asked to answer several questions or analyse situations and cases in text form, without any study aids such as notes or textbooks. Written examinations are 3 hours unless otherwise indicated by the lecturer.
Type 2 exams are assignments completed individually or in groups.
