The university is going to tell me what books to buy during the welcome week or before? or I find the information on the website? I'm referring to the City university of London or Birkbeck university. Thank you

Most of the recommended books. can be found in the library, so you should get them during freshers week. To see your reading list go to your uni website, find your course and click on each modules you'll be studying for this coming year to see the syllabus. If you can't see it, then wait until you fully enrol to the uni, so that you can access the module contents.

At some point you will be given a reading list- when/how this comes will vary from uni to uni and course to course. Some unis will give a general list for the whole course and some will give it module by module.

Many books will be in the uni library, so it may be worth waiting until you've seen ho easy these are to access and how much you're using them before you commit to buying.

When you arrive at uni also check the notice boards in your department- older years and graduates will often sell off the textbooks they no longer need at cheaper prices.
