Our city branch in the Student Commons Building at 2 Alfred Street stock all Executive Programme texts. We offer all customers discounted prices (off RRP / List Price) and departmental orders may be eligible for additional discount.

University Bookshop orders class sets for all prescribed Executive Program texts, therefore accurate class size / restriction information is crucial. The lead-time for delivery of textbooks can be 6-8 weeks, sometimes longer depending on worldwide availability. Many courses require students to read the text before the lectures begin so ideally we need to be notified of your text option three months in advance.

Please indicate in which quarter the course runs. To ensure no courses are overlooked we would appreciate notification of all courses being taught, regardless of whether there are set texts or not. For more information on further University Bookshop texts/academic services please browse our other headings on this page. If you know what you want for your semester, contact us for a form or to arrange a visit from one of our staff.

  • Price and availability of titles
