Question:

Library: How can I borrow a book from the library?

(Last edited: Friday, 19 June 2020, 4:37 PM)
Answer:

Students will receive all information about book lending through emails. The emails are usually sent by the library assistant before the start of each block; therefore, it is important to keep track of all emails through your student account.

Note:

All students must make sure that they are registered for all exams/modules in advance.  Registration allows students to collect books for the modules and take the exams. No registration means no books!

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.
