Before you start shopping

  • We recommend ordering online to avoid long waiting times in the shop.
  • Make a book list before you come to the shop.
  • Wait to order until after your first lecture. Recommended textbooks are not necessarily compulsory study material. Your lecturer will usually indicate how often the books will have to be used.
