2024 University Booklists

The booklist information is categorised according to Faculties and Schools. Not all Schools utilise a list of prescribed and recommended books, thus not all University Schools appear on this list.

Below you will find spreadsheets of book titles recommended or prescribed as communicated by participating Schools. Some titles (prescribed or recommended) are available either in the Wits libraries or online, please also visit the LibGuides links for the respective faculties.

For any book-related queries such as information not clear in the list or you are unable to locate the required book, please contact the booklist coordinator for that school/faculty offering the course. The contact details of booklist coordinators are located at the beginning of each section.
