In the course catalogue you can find an overview of the prescribed literature for each course.

You can buy books for all your Bachelor and (Pre)Master courses with Study Association ECU’92.

The U.S.E. Board has set a maximum price for the literature at 12,50 euro per ECTS. You can find the book costs per period when you order your books at the ECU’92 website.

As a member you get substantial discounts on your books. You must always order your books in advance (except for Freshmen students in period 1). Ordering books with ECU’92 goes as follows:

  1. You go to the books section on the ECU’92 website, by clicking here
  2. You click “order your books”, which will direct you to the ECU'92 webshop for books.
  3. You select the books you want to order and pay online, via e.g. iDEAL or PayPal.
  4. You pick up the books you ordered during the ECU’92 book sale in the Spinoza Building.
  • Period 1, 2018-2019: 3, 4 or 5 September 2018
    (NOTE: Freshmen students do not have to order their books for period 1, ECU'92 will do this for you. You can pick up your books on September 5th and pay via debit card or cash.)
  • Period 2, 2018-2019: November 2018
  • Period 3, 2018-2019: February 2019
  • Period 4, 2018-2019: April 2019

Make sure to order your books before the deadline, which will be approximately two weeks before the book sale. The exact deadline for each period will be published on the ECU'92 website. If you miss the deadline, you can still order your books via the web shop. The books then will be sent to your home address, but the discounts might be lower and you will be charged shipping costs. Next to that, if you order your books after the deadline, ECU’92 cannot guarantee that they will be delivered in time. The discounts only apply to ECU'92 members, non-members pay the normal price.
