As a student, you never have enough money for overpriced textbooks. This is why, in collaboration with Smartbooks, Mercurius offers a discount of 8% on Dutch titles and 13% on English titles! We sell books for all Communication Science Bachelor courses. The book list is compiled in consultation with the lecturers so that you always have the right textbooks. To buy them at a discounted price, you must be a member of Mercurius. You can become a member on our website or while ordering your books. All books are arranged by year, semester, and course.
