Background

Historically, selected Postgraduate business courses have had their prescribed textbooks supplied to students. Following a review and consultation (including relevant Partners) by the Faculty Leadership Team, the following changes are being applied:

  • 201890 ALL STUDENTS (starting from)
    Where hard copy prescribed textbooks were provided, we will now provide eBooks for all applicable subjects.
  • 201930 CONTINUING STUDENTS (starting from)
    For a phase-out period of three (3) years (2019-21), we will pay the CONTINUING Postgraduate students (within applicable courses) a $100 contribution for their prescribed textbook, per subject enrolment.
    This means no textbooks (hard copy or eBooks) will be provided.
  • 201930 NEW STUDENTS (starting from)
    We will STOP providing prescribed textbooks to NEW Postgraduate students in the applicable courses.

There will be additional reminders and communications with students prior to the start of 201930.
