The Personal eTextbooks scheme

The Personal eTextbooks scheme

Free personal eTextbooks are provided to all students enrolled on undergraduate or postgraduate taught courses based at the Hendon campus in London, or the Mauritius campus.

For each module studied, students will receive one free eTextbook - an average of 4 books per student per year. These textbooks are to keep in perpetuity and students will be able to access throughout their University career and onwards in their future career.

The JS Group ( and Kortext ( have helped to run and manage the scheme on the behalf of Middlesex University since 2015. We have provided over 280,000 books to almost 70,000 students in the last 6 years.
