Wittenborg prides itself in providing education through intensive contact with lecturers, tutors and people from business and industry. Some lectures are given face to face, others in workshop and project format, always with a professional teacher or expert from industry. At Wittenborg students will experience a full curriculum with up to 32 contact hours a week, during lesson weeks. Project weeks are filled with coaching sessions, workshops and business excursions, and the exam week is compact and efficient.
Wittenborg’s yearly programming is flexible but businesslike. One academic year of Wittenborg consists of totally 40 academic weeks, namely six 6-week blocks and two 2-week retake exam periods. Most first and second phase of Bachelor IBA modules are taught in blocks of six weeks, with full module examinations taking place in the sixth week, thus completing that part of the programme.
Students are more motivated after receiving real credits at the end of each six-week study, which is a proven visible advantage of Wittenborg’s independent block system. Additionally, there are also modules that run throughout the whole academic year, such as Personal Development Plan, Tutoring and language studies.
An advantage of the independent block system of Wittenborg is to allow students to enter the programme at six times of the year, and possible graduate six times every year too, which saves students’ valuable time and money. The atmosphere within the classroom can be described as "helpful and active". There are always current students in the same classroom to give a personal introduction and assistance to newcomers. Among students from different continents and cultures, discussions are always encouraged to create further and deeper understanding about certain subjects.
