I have accepted an unconditional offer for Astronomy and Physics FF5H starting on the 1st of September 2019. I was wondering what books I will need to purchase for the course. If someone could please help me as I wish to buy them asap.

When you arrive, you sign up to 3 subjects and get added to their moodle page! On the moodle page they have reading lists or professors tell you the key ones you need in the first lecture! Once you’re here, we have a normal bookshop and a secondhand bookshop!

Course content and required reading for any subject can often change year on year, so I wouldn't buy anything until you're actually at the uni and have the full course information on hand.

Unless you were emailed about preliminary reading (reading you must do before starting uni), you would be much better off waiting until you get there to buy books as you won’t know which books are needed and will likely be able to get them cheaper from second-hand bookshops and/or older students.

Hi, I myself will be starting the MSci Physics in September.

With regards to reading, this is what I could find online. Here is a link to a page on the UoG Talis that calls for a specific book for the first year physics course (the page in question is however 5 years out of date). Honestly, would get in contact with the uni or current students to see what you should get hold of as it wouldn't hurt to have books beforehand, but this could be worth looking at anyway.

Presumably you would be doing astro courses too so probably worth looking at the lists for all the department courses here.
