We have all asked this ourselves a million times before we arrived in HK. However, books will never be a problem, you will have an opportunity to buy them new, old, ancient, used, highlighted with notes, without notes, with missing pages, everything is possible here:
1. New: Buy them new from Oxford Bookshop at 4527 Masarykovo Namesti, Hradec Kralove 500 02 or from amazon.de or .co.uk
2. Used: You can find books sold by students who have finished your subjects here or at one of the physical bazaars organised by ISU in the beginning of October.
3. Borrowing: You can borrow all the books you need, albeit not the newest versions, from the medical library against a refundable deposit of 10 000 Kč (€400 or £350).
It is, however, strongly strongly suggested that you buy them only once you arrive in HK so that you know what books you really need.
One of our sister organisations is HK Mums and Dads, which plays a huge role in the settling in of students in their first week. You can find their group on the link here.
We hope that this year we will have more cooperation between the two organisations and you will be able to apply for this right off of our website, as part of your membership application of if you choose not to become a member then via a special form. You will be inform of the details of this in early September.
