*Discount on Dutch books
For Dutch books, there is a fixed price by law. An exception applies to textbooks. Students who order during a collective ordering period receive a maximum of 10% discount on the fixed price for textbooks because the study association can order them collectively on their behalf. Outside these ordering periods you can still order your books online, but in that case you receive a maximum of 5% discount on Dutch books (when ordering at least 2 different Dutch books at the same time).For international books there is no legislation and you always get the maximum discount from the study association!
