Notebook and software
As a WUR student, you can order discounted notebooks and software. Through the LaptopShop you can purchase a laptop including comprehensive service at a discount.
As you know is ProefschriftMaken.nl the new supplier for readers since the second period of this academic year. Readers can be ordered on ProefschriftMaken.nl.
It is no longer possible to order books at a discount via Studystore.
There are alternatives where books can be ordered e.g. bol.com, bookmatch.nl, bookdepository.com, etc. It is the student's own responsibility where the required books are ordered. In the study handbook you can find if and which books are recommended for a course. If in doubt, you can also contact the course coordinator.
As Wageningen University, we will see if we can find another provider willing to offer books at (extra) discount for WU-students, but this will not be arranged in a short time. This also means that for period 5 and most likely period 6 of the current academic year, this will no longer be possible.
Many recommended books are available in the Study Collection in Forum Library for consultation only (not for loan).
