Required text books

What books do I need?

On LMS (the Learning Management System) you will find a unit outline for each of your enrolled units for the current semester. The unit outline will contain an overview of the unit which will include any required textbooks.Your enrolled units will become available in LMS in the week prior to the commencement of Semester.

You can also enter the unit codes for your enrolled units within the search facility of the Co-op bookstore to find your required textbooks:

  1. Go to Co-op bookshop website
  2. Click on "Find Your Textbooks"
  3. Use the search tool to find your institution (University of Western Australia)
  4. Filter by current semester
  5. Enter each unit code to reveal your book list

Note: Not all units will have their course materials listed on the Co-op website.

You will be responsible for organising your books and any materials you need, and you don't have to buy everything on the list before classes start. Generally, it is a good idea to wait until your first lecture to see what the lecturers require you to have.

Books can be purchased new at the Co-op bookshop (ground floor, Guild Village or online) or second hand at the Guild Secondhand bookshop (second floor, Guild Village), which are both located on campus. You can also buy books online via the Guild Texchange (a platform for all UWA students to BUY, SELL or SWAP textbooks online) or via a number of textbook exchange groups on Facebook.
