If eBooks are issued to you as part of your Flying Start entitlement you will be able to access a copy ‘in perpetuity’ via the BibliU platform. This means you will still be able retain the downloaded eBook on your device and access it after you leave university.

You will be able to read, highlight and make notes in all during the year, however you will only keep (in perpetuity) those assigned to your course reading list and not the additional titles.
