Where do I have to buy my study books?

Professors will indicate the required materials for their courses and will estimate their costs at the start of the semester.

You can also find a description of the required course material in the course specifications in the programme catalogue and on the Minerva course site of each course.

There are several ways to get your textbooks:

  • The faculty's student organisation 'VEK' and 'Moeder Lies' distribute (some of the) handbooks: upload the course site with code FX00022A 'Boekenverkoop FEB/Textbook sale FEB' on your Minerva account and then you can consult a list of books they provide + the distribution dates.
  • You can find handbooks at several book stores: Acco (Sint-Kwintensberg 87, 9000 Gent), Standaard Boekhandel (Kouter 31, 9000 Gent). The bookshop Standaard Boekhandel organizes sales on campus!
  • Alternatively you can borrow required books from the faculty library for a limited time.


Don't hesitate to contact your buddy if you need help on this issue!

Required course materials are not distributed through the International Relations Office.
