Buying or renting your textbooks

The Study Centre Library only holds 10% of all textbooks. So it is highly recommended you buy a copy of your textbook as there is no guarantee that your textbook will be available especially during exam time and if it's an open book exam.


You can buy your textbook through the following online outlets:


You can purchase a second-hand copy of some of the textbooks from StudentVip and Zookal.


You are also able to rent some of your textbooks for a semester from Zookal and Jekkle.
