Types of literature

There are 3 types of literature you need for studying at HAS University of Applied Sciences: books, lecture notes and Blackboard.

  1. Books: 
    can be ordered online in advance, at bookshop Hurkmans: or another (local) book store.
    In the Netherlands, most books will be shipped to you within 24 hours for no extra cost. Foreign books and books from other training institutes sometimes have a longer delivery time, so do not wait too long to order. Do you have questions about the literature list? Send an email to Please note this is a Dutch company.
  2. Lecture notes (readers):
    are made available digitally (via MS Teams, Blackboard, mail, etc.). The teachers will inform you where you can find the materials. If you decide you want a printed copy and you are already in the Netherlands, you can order them at Copyshop van der Heijden using the order form on their website.
  3. Blackboard:
    refers to materials that will be digitally available in September.

In your introduction period, time will be available to get your books (if ordered) and readers. Your coach will help you with this.

Please contact Hurkmans
