Reading list

To help you decide if this programme is right for you, here is a list of articles and books that have previously been part of the first year of study. You may find them interesting to look over.

Your school or local library can help you find copies, and many of the books are available to purchase. You won't be expected to have read these prior to studying but they will give you a sense of what we think is interesting and worth your time.
