Ik wil graag al mijn studieboeken in een keer kopen, kan dat?
You can buy textbooks for the whole year, but we strongly advise against it. Not only is it expensive, but you also take a risk. Sometimes changes occur in the prescribed literature, or new editions of books appear. This could mean that you bought the wrong book, or that you bought a book that you don't need at all. If you order books per period, you are always in the right place!

Discounts on Engelstalige boeken
