Most subjects will require you to purchase at least one textbook, and you can find the prescribed list in your Subject Outline via LearnJCU.

Textbooks can be purchased online from Booktopia. Their academic experts have matched your course to the books you need and you can search by course code, or use the form to select the courses you are enrolled in to see your course materials. Double check this against the list in your Subject Outline.

Second-hand textbooks are also available online at StudentVIP, but make sure that you buy the correct edition, as information is regularly updated.

Search for your textbook in OneSearch on the JCU Library website, as they have physical and online versions for you to borrow. If you live 50km or more from either Cairns or Townsville campuses, you can use the Off-Campus Library Service to borrow books.
