Facilities & services: library & bookshop
As a registered Centre for Lifelong Learning student, you may use the University Library. If you're registered on an Open Studies class (ie one which carries credit), you may apply for an External Borrower's card.
Students registered on non-credit classes may use the library's facilities but have read-only access and cannot borrow books.
To access the Library, take your registration letter or class receipt to the library and show it to the member of staff at the main entrance.
To apply for your External Borrower's card, take your Registration Letter to the Issue/Return Desk of the Library. Complete an External Borrower's application form. A Borrower's card will be available for collection three to four days later from the same office.
Language learning resources are also available for language students in the library.
Take a look at the Library webpages to find out more.
Students attending language classes at the Centre will find the materials they need listed under Language materials .
Please note: Some classes either do not require a set textbook or in other cases the recommended title is listed in the class description within the brochure.
The material lists are in PDF format. If you're having issues opening your list please check you have Adobe Reader installed on your computer or you have the most up to date version. Download the latest version of Adobe Reader.
