It is recommended that you have your own copy of or access to the textbook(s) that are prescribed for study in your topic(s).
The Co-op is the University’s preferred textbook supplier. Their website has up-to-date information on textbook requirements for Flinders topics. They offer free shipping on orders over $50, and further savings with membership. Their outlet at the Hub will be available to collect orders, and may also provide limited services to Sturt, Tonsley and FMC. It is advisable to purchase prescribed textbooks as early as possible in preparation for study.
Textbook details may also be found on FLO topic sites—this information may be included in a block, in an announcement, or with other documentation from the topic coordinator (e.g. ‘Learning resources’ page).
