Reading Lists for 2015-2016

We are beginning to collect and validate recommended texts for purchase for the new academic year. This information is updated to an online database that is promoted to students. Orders are placed in August for the start of the new term. We can obtain titles very quickly, within 24/48 hours, but obviously publishers do go out of stock and books published overseas can take longer. Please let us know which essential titles you would like us to stock by email - and we will do the rest.

Bookshop Stock-take

The Bookshop is closed from Monday 27 July 2015 for our annual stock-take, part of the University's financial year-end procedure. We re-open Monday 3 August 2015. Customer orders received during this time will be placed to ensure delivery is as soon as possible when we re-open.
All departmental book orders for internal recharge must be received by Monday 13 July 2015.

We're open throughout the year whatever your book requirements, from the moment you consider Christ Church as an undergraduate to post-graduate studies -  we're here for you.
