    What's the link to the IR recommended reading?
    http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/intrel/ugcourses/1005.html

    In the IR module handbook, there's also a list of books to read throughout the course.

    Mine said it would take a month, but they actually only took two weeks, so they could come quicker!

    Ankan, I couldn't find the ancient history reading online; there may not be any. If there is, it would probably be somewhere around this website: http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/classics...thistory.shtml Does anyone know if there is summer reading for English? I couldn't find anything but I may have missed something.

    There isn't always "summer reading"; some of the course websites suggest reading certain books if you want to get a head start. All courses have a module handbook which will outline what books you'll need to read during the semester. It's up to you whether you want to read ahead.

    Understanding International Relations is 291 pages, and I've really liked it so far. I read the first two chapters this afternoon and it didn't take too long. International Relations since 1945, though, is pretty big: 740 pages. I might just read a few chapters from it, I really don't see how I can do the whole thing. I haven't purchased the third book yet...

    Well on the off chance that someone here is postgrad or knows postgrad: does anyone know if the M.Litt in Marketing has summer reading? Or where I could find it? I tried trolling around the management school site but I'm pretty retarded and wasn't able to find anything.

    You'll be fine! Just read books and do brain teasers over the summer to keep your brain on its toes. If you got accepted, then obviously someone thinks you're up to the challenge!

    It's not a waste of time! It's certainly not necessary, considering 90% of the students won't have done it either, but it's definitely not a waste of time. It should enable you to ask more enlightened questions in lectures and means you don't have to do as much reading during the year.
