Optometry students (L-R) Victor Liu, Jess Healey, Anjalee Athukoralage and Sena Gocuk
By Jeff Megahan
Anjalee Athukoralage is a second-year optometry student at the University of Melbourne who needed to buy the book Anterior Eye Disease and Therapeutics A-Z by Adrian Bruce and Michael Loughnan. When she found that a majority of her classmates were also interested in buying the book, she arranged a bulk order at a discounted price from the Online Store.
‘We have a Facebook group where we actively communicate,’ she explained. ‘It came in very handy when organising the order.’
Anjalee says her fellow classmates were happy with the money they saved and very impressed with how quickly and efficiently they all received their books. ‘We will consider doing a bulk order again for next year’s textbooks and we certainly recommend that other students consider doing the same,’ she said.
‘As a group we saved $600 for 40 books!’
Student discounts for bulk orders are not set at a fixed percentage but vary for each title. To qualify for a bulk order, students need to make payment at the time of ordering.
