DCU Language Services operate a book rental scheme which allows students to rent their core text book for the duration of their programme.
The fee for book rental is €35, which includes a deposit of €20 and a rental fee of €15. If the book is returned in excellent condition at the end of their programme, the student will receive the deposit of €20 back.
Students must not write in their rented books and are encouraged to maintain them in good condition.
Students can choose to purchase their course book instead of renting. The typical cost of a course book is around €35 but this may vary depending on the course. A no-returns policy applies.
When students change level to another class they exchange their current book for one at the appropriate level.
The book rental service is not available for exam preparation courses, English for Academic Purposes or Business English courses. Students who join exam or specialist English programmes must purchase a copy of the relevant book. Book purchase is included in the Registration Fee for these programmes.
