Books and other materials

During your courses, study books are regularly used as a source of information. You can choose to buy these study books yourself independently (online or via the bookshop), but the study association Lugus offers you another option that is both easier and cheaper. As the study association orders books in great numbers, the association has been able to get a discount from the book supplier, which is advantageous for you.

Which study books do I need?

In your admission letter you received the courses that are part of your premaster programme. You can find extensive information on the courses of your degree programme in Ocasys. For each course the obligatory literature is stated, which often is a study book.
