Question:

Redirecting Post: How can I get my post redirected to my new residence overseas?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 23 June 2020, 5:15 PM)
Answer:

It can always be a hassle if your post gets misplaced after you have moved abroad. It may also be difficult for your friends or relatives to contact you if you have moved without letting them know in advance. There is a smart way to ensure any lost or misplaced posts by applying for this service on the Postnl website. This will enable all posts to your old address to be automatically redirected to the new address abroad. This service from Postnl is free of charge. 

To avoid confusion because the website is mainly in Dutch, there is the option of visiting a Postnl office in your area and activating this service.

You can apply for this service online by visiting their Postnl website at: https://www.postnl.nl/ontvangen/post-doorsturen/doorzendservice/.

Question:

Registration at Municipality: When should I register at the municipality?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 23 June 2020, 5:17 PM)
Answer:

After receiving a residence permit, foreign students can register in their municipality. All students must be registered at their local City Hall. Just call your local City Hall for an appointment.

The Front Desk can make an appointment with the Gemeente (City Hall) for registration of the newly arrived students from abroad in Apeldoorn. For the appointment, students should bring the following documents:

  • Residence permit
  • Passport (original copy)
  • Birth Certificate (with legalised translation in Dutch or English)
  • Accommodation contract
 Citizen Service Number (BSN)  

“Burgerservicenummer” (BSN) is a unique personal number that enables reliable and efficient data exchange between citizens and government. In the Netherlands, all residents must have their own BSN if they wish to engage in either part-time or full-time work or studies, and for administrative issues, such as opening a bank account. 

NOTE:

  • A BSN will be issued to all students upon registering at the Gemeente.
  • The whole process of the BSN number may take 2 to 3 weeks upon arrival.

Question:

Question:

Registration: I am unable to meet the study credit requirement to continue my registration at WUAS, what do I do?

(Last edited: Friday, 11 September 2020, 8:56 AM)
Answer:

The Wittenborg EEG rules and regulations state that, in order to continue a successful registration, a student must obtain at least 30 European study credits (ECs) within 12 months. 

Only where there are mitigating circumstances preventing the student from successful studying and, therefore, leaving the student unable to gain sufficient credits to continue their studies, can exemption to the credit requirement be requested. The request must be submitted by filling in this webform. Please be aware that an exemption to the credit requirement can only be requested once within the duration of the degree programme

The Student Registrar will evaluate the request based on the explanation and documentation provided and will inform the student and the Process Tutor of the final decision within 2 weeks after the request has been submitted. The request will only be taken into consideration if the request has been submitted at least 1 block before the 12 months have passed.    

If a student does not meet the credit requirement by the end of the 12 months and did not have any mitigating circumstances preventing the student from obtaining the credits, the deregistration process will be set into motion within 4 weeks after the 12 months have passed. For EU students, the deregistration will be communicated to the Dienst Uitvoering Onderwijs (DUO). For non-EU/EER students, WUAS will inform the Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) of deregistration, leading to a revocation of the study residence permit. 


Question:

Residence Permit (RP): What shall I do if my RP is going to expire soon? How do I extend my RP?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 12 May 2021, 3:51 PM)
Answer:

In principle, you will be notified by Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) when your residence permit will expire soon (within three months). It is fully your own responsibility to notify Registrar Office and submit required information and documents completely to extend your residence permit on time to avoid residency gap in your residency in the Netherlands. 

Kindly refer the webform and upload all necessary documents to request for an RP extension: https://form.wittenborg.eu/visa-application-RP-extension.htm. Please submit the form at least 6 weeks prior to your RP expiration date. Then the Registrar Office could have sufficient time to review your files, prepare your RP extension application and send to IND.

Additionally, please note that we cannot submit an application for a residence permit extension of the validity if the residence permit is still valid for more than three months. The IND will disregard an application for an extension that is submitted earlier than three months before the expiration date of the residence permit

Should you have any question concerning this email, feel free to contact us directly via email: registrar@wittenborg.eu.



Question:

Residence Permit Expired: What should I do if my residence permit has expired but I cannot leave the Netherlands at this moment?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 14 July 2020, 10:04 AM)
Answer:

Submit an extension application at the IND desk where possible. If this is not possible, you can ask for a return decision at the counter. With a return decision, you then have an additional 28 days to leave the country. You can make appointments at the counter in the usual way, but bear in mind the currently limited services at the IND counters.




Question:

Residence Permit Gap: What is the "residence permit gap" and the consequences if I have a gap in the residence permit period?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 9 March 2021, 10:59 AM)
Answer:

A residence gap is an interruption in your continuous stay and may cause problems later on if you want to apply for a Dutch permanent residence. In general, a residence permit gap has affects in the longer term, if you decide to apply for a Dutch permanent residence permit in the future. In order to apply for a permanent residence permit, one of the requirements is that you have legally resided in the Netherlands for an uninterrupted period of five years or more before you make the permanent residence permit application. This means that you require to have had a valid residence permit for the full five years, without interruptions or gaps within this period. You have thus always applied for extension of your residence permit on time. Another requirement is that within these five consecutive years you have not stayed outside the Netherlands for six or more consecutive months, or three years in a row for four or more consecutive months.

The consequence of a residence permit gap is that the period of legal residence in the Netherlands before this gap will not be taken into consideration. This means that you will have to start again building up a five-year uninterrupted period in the Netherlands to obtain permanent residency.

For example: If your first residence permit is issued from 01-09-2009 till 31-08-2013, and if you apply for residence permit extension later than your expiration date (31-08-2013), then residency gap is created, and the IND starts counting from that day onwards -- that day your application form is received by the IND. Even a single day difference is recognised as a residency gap.

Question:

Residence Permit: I have arrived in the Netherlands, but I cannot collect my residence permit, as IND has limited their office hours. What can I do?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 14 July 2020, 9:34 AM)
Answer:

If your residence permit is ready to be collected at the IND office, Wittenborg will have informed you of the collection of your residence permit by email.  

The current IND regulations state that you must pick up your residence permit within 3 months as stated on your MVV sticker. However, if you are unable to do so, as the IND states that the residence permits cannot be picked up at the IND office until 6th of April, please inform us (email registrar@wittenborg.eu) if you cannot meet the 3-months deadline. Wittenborg will then request IND for an extension of these 3 months, so that you can collect your residence permit later at the IND office. 



Question:

Residence Permit: Is MVV required for British students who want to arrive in the Netherlands for the purpose of their studies?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 15 June 2021, 10:29 AM)
Answer:

British students can still apply for a residence document under the Withdrawal Agreement on https://ind.nl/en/Pages/Brexit-(UK-Withdrawal-Agreement).aspx by 30 September 2021 at the latest. This is only possible if they have demonstrably resided in the Netherlands before 1 January 2021. 

For British students who came or will come to the Netherlands after 1 January 2021, we will request a Dutch Residence Permit (VVR) without an MVV for study purpose, and inform the students once we receive a notification letter (kennisgeving) from the Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) stating that the student will receive a VVR. When the students are in the Netherlands, they will be able to collect their Dutch Study Permits from the IND office.

For more information, kindly refer to the IND page: https://ind.nl/en/Pages/Brexit.aspx?mm_not=1

Question:

Retake: For Type 2 Exams, can I revise my original assignment and submit it during the retake?

(Last edited: Thursday, 22 October 2020, 12:20 PM)
Answer:

Starting from Block 2 (2020-2021), for retakes: students are NOT allowed to revise their original assingments submitted at the end of the respective teaching block. They must hand in a ‘new’ assignment. This is because the final submission of a Type 2 assignment is supported with a feedback that is provided on the draft (as a compulsory requirement) within the block. The retake submission will be based on the same exam Type 2 instructions provided during the teaching block but using a different topic/case/context/company etc.

There are however, exceptions to this rule:
The pedagogical and didactical requirements necessitate that students of the following modules can submit a revised version of the same assessment in the subsequent retake block. If the students do not pass the module in the retake block, they will be required to attempt the module during the next delivery and submit the module assignment (exam Type 2) as per the module instructions.
