Any international university, or college, must have strong support systems for its international students coming to study abroad, or local students going for a period of study or work placement in another country. Sometimes, but very rarely, help is required in an ultimate health care decision, as was the case of Wittenborg’s Chinese student Debbie Kuang (1979-2012).

WUP 05/12/2014 - New Dutch Student Loans System to Start in 2015 - Despite continued protests, it’s becoming evident that new Dutch students starting with their bachelor or master studies in September 2015 will most likely not receive a basic grant from the Dutch government like it was done in the past.
WUP 13/3/2013 - Debbie Kuang's Stone placed yesterday (12 March 2013) -Yesterday morning at the public cemetery in Epe, near Apeldoorn, the gravestone of Wittenborg student Debbie Kuang was placed, as instructed by Wittenborg University. Debbie died of cancer in May 2012, after a long battle, and many students and staff members were very involved in the period before and after her death. A commemorative scholarship fund was set up after her death to help support students from developing countries to study at Wittenborg University, and in September 2013 the first 8 students will start their studies under the Debbie Scholarship Fund.
