    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.

    Do you have your list?

    Depending on the material you need you can get it at the Standaard Student ShopOSD course material service or even buy it second hand.

    all official course books and other study material

    You can buy everything you need to get started in the Standaard Student Shop webshop or stop by at the shop on campus Etterbeek.
