Try Being a Student at Wittenborg
If you are abroad, then we know it's difficult for you to come and experience a trial day at Wittenborg in Apeldoorn - however why don't you fill in an information request form and make an appointment for a lecturer to call you back? Or you could request to join an online seminar.
If you are in the Netherlands, why not come and join a guest lecture, workshop, or even follow a complete lesson day, or project week?
Wittenborg Business University is innovative, entrepreneurial with a business like and especially international character. A Wittenborg student feels at home in this setting, and as a prospective student its important for you to understand Wittenborg’s approach to learning, and business, which is why we want to give applying students the best possible introduction to our business school, to help them in their decision making! This can be done, by following a lesson, a lesson week, watching a project week presentation, or following a Final Phase seminar.
Your can chose from three options:
Option A: Follow a lesson, or lesson week with the first year students.
The first lesson week in a block is the best time to follow a lesson. This happens six times a year. All students start new modules during this week so everyone is new to the class and open to meeting each other. This is an excellent way to meet students, ask them all the questions, see the way classes are taught and experience the unique Wittenborg atmosphere.
Option B: Watch student presentations.
Every lesson Block has a project week in which students work together on business projects and present their results, pitches, business or marketing plans and research. Presentations are given on Thursday or Friday of these weeks, and can give prospective students a great introduction to the Wittenborg way of doing things.
Option C: Follow a Workshop or Seminar
The seminars, offered throughout the year and the admissions office will make an appointment for you to join one. Sometimes the seminars are for Master students, this means that the content of the seminar can be pitched at a high academic level, however this is not always the case with interpersonal and intercultural skills based workshops, and first and second year bachelor seminars, which are suitable for all students.
A seminar lasts between 1 and 3 hours and visiting students are asked to arrive ½ an hour before the seminar starts for a short briefing/preparation. After the seminar you will be given the chance to chat and review your experience with one of our staff members and to answer any of the questions concerning application. All the above options of course include the opportunity to have a tour of the school and its facilities.
