We’re heading back to campus, everyone. It’s finally here – after a few years of remote university learning in most Australian states and territories, we’re dusting off the backpacks and getting ready to not being able to find our classrooms (does Room GE41 in the Murphy Building make sense to anyone, ever?). 

The Daily Aus and Booktopia can’t help you find your way around campus – but we CAN help you with finding your way around a textbook list. Booktopia has already done the work for you – they’ve contacted your professors and have most book lists on their website, ready to buy. You can even search by your course code!

We know that textbooks can be expensive. On average, we’re spending about $600 on them every year. That’s quite a dent in the ol’ rent/noodles/beverage fund.

This is your chance to win 2x $500 Booktopia Gift Certificates!

1. Tag the uni mate that you'd share the prize with!

2. Make sure you both follow @thedailyaus and @booktopiabooks

3. Get ready with Booktopia's huge range of textbooks. Plus, study now and pay later with Afterpay!

This competition is open to Australian residents only, commencing 6:00pm AEDT, Sunday 6 February 2022 and ends 11:59pm AEDT, Wednesday 9 February 2022. Winners will be notified via DM from the verified @thedailyaus or @booktopiabooks accounts only.
