GA/FP: Can I request a change or extension in the submission of my Graduation Assignment?
The deadlines are clearly defined in the EEG in tabulated form so that students can plan and meet the exact deadlines looking backwards from the expected block of graduation.

GA/FP: Can I upgrade one of my module results in the same block as my graduation block?
As per the rules, the student should have completed 220 European Credits (ECs) to submit and defend the Graduation Assignment/Final Project (GA/FP). These ECs including the obtained grades are locked in order to allow him/her to proceed with the GA/FP submission. We do not expect any changes in these grades at the time of defence or afterwards. A student could even fail a module in a worst-case scenario attempting to upgrade his/her mark. We cannot work with any uncertainties/probabilities, though in the case of failure in a reattempt a previous pass grade will remain intact.
We are happy to facilitate such upgrade attempts, but they must be completed before the GA/FP final submission as per the rules. The student cannot proceed with a GA/FP defence in the case of any pending results. Therefore, it is the student’s choice and decision to proceed with the GA/FP defence without upgrades or wait for the upgrades before proceeding with the defence. Please note the extra tuition and fees it may cost if your graduation gets delayed.

GA/FP: How many graduation ceremonies are there at Wittenborg? Which graduation ceremony can I attend?
There are two graduation ceremonies per year, i.e. Winter Graduation Ceremony (February) & Summer Graduation Ceremony (July).
Students who graduated in blocks 1, 2 & 3 will be invited to the winter graduation and students who graduated in blocks 5, 6 & 7 will be invited to the summer graduation.
Students can invite their family members to come to the graduation ceremony. A graduation ceremony signifies a close to your study journey at Wittenborg. It is a day full of joy, the perfect opportunity to see your fellow graduates one more time and celebrate your graduation together.

GA/FP: How many meetings can I have with my supervisor?
There is no specific limit, but you can always contact your Academic Supervisor if it is required. However, according to the EEG Part 8, "Supervisors are allocated a total of 14 hours per student, which includes marking. Supervisors can expect regular, punctual attendance at Academic Supervisorial meetings. Try to avoid 'dropping in' to supervisors’ offices and quickly asking for advice since the supervisor may need time to reflect on your questions.
Students must come fully prepared to Academic Supervisorial meetings, which means that you have read around the subject area, and/or have drafts of material that need to be consulted." It is advisable to send the materials for discussion to the supervisors at least one or two working days before the meeting (depending on the working routine of the supervisors).

GA/FP: I have uploaded my Graduation Assignment/Final Project on the wrong Turnitin area. What can I do to resolve this issue?
Please inform the Helpdesk and include the link to the wrong submission area. We will delete the wrong paper for you and you can then upload it to the correct area.
Please note that you should inform us before the deadline. It will not be possible once the deadline to the specific submission area has passed.

GA/FP: I want to upload my Graduation Assignment (GA) but I have a problem where I cannot log in to the GA online area because I am not enrolled any more, and when I tried to re-enrol, I could not find the GA course in the search courses bar area.
All bachelor's students are now added to a common GA area, where we have provided links to each specialisation GA course area. Course: Graduation Assignment (Bachelor) |GA32_FP_All| (wittenborg-online.com)
For master’s students, you can find the GA/FP upload area in your own programme.
Once you want to access your GA area, you can simply click on it in the table. If you are no more enrolled there, it will ask for an enrolment key and you can find the enrolment keys in Process Tutor areas. It has not changed.

GA/FP: Is uploading Chapter 1-3 and Chapter 1-4 mandatory?
No, but do realise that these are the only two opportunities that students get to have in-depth feedback on the content of their work. Missing out on this feedback seriously reduces the chance of a pass. Do keep in mind that you can only ask for a ‘free’ block after a fail on the Graduation Assignment when these upload opportunities are used.
