Student Book Fund


Shelf of library books

Students experiencing financial hardship can apply to our Student Book Fund to receive free printed books on the required reading list.

The fund has been established to ensure students are not disadvantaged by being unable to afford print copies of books needed for their studies. Priority will be given to core texts that will be used throughout a module or unit.

The scheme has a ‘pay it forward’ element which means that students can opt to return the books to the library when they are finished with them, to benefit other students.

Although most of our book stock is available as ebooks online, some books are still only available in print. The fund is open to all students enrolled at UHI Inverness who are in financial hardship. Each application will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

The application can be found here: Student Book Fund Application

Alternatively you can find this through the online library guide and the virtual learning environment, known as Brightspace.

After the application is approved the library will order the book from a supplier. It can then be picked up at the library or be sent out to students who study remotely.
