Please note that due to varying interpretations of the post-Brexit EU/UK trading agreement, some EU countries are imposing import duty on the value of the goods received from the UK. It is payable by the end consumer via the delivery company and your delivery may be witheld until paid. This may vary from country to country and be up to a value of 20% of the value of the study material.

Orders are despatched within 5 working days. Any books that are not in stock (indicated alongside each book) will be sent as soon as they are available.
