    First things first

    Before you rush of to the student shop, make sure you know which books you need.

    Not sure which books you need?

    Have a look at the compulsory and recommended course material mentioned in the online course descriptions (navigate through your programme and then choose the courses to find the details and course materials). Use the catalog number (e.g. 1021078ANR) to look up your books in the online shop.

    Tip! Wait to buy your recommended books until after the first class. The professor usually indicates how often you will use them.

    Buy your books online
