    Hi Sue,
    Good to see you again……met you for the first time at Leicester last Nov 2011.
    I’ve also had a very good experience at Leicester and I’ve just started on module 4.I must say your recommendations came at the right time.I’m still battling with finding the topic but i know these books will come in handy.
    All the best for you,

    Thanks so much Sue. Your post and the recommended books are quite timely. I was currently battling with identifying reference points for my module 4 assignment. It’s been an experience with Leicester and I am hopeful we will all excel.

    God bless.

    I have just started with the University of Leicester in February 2012 and I am from Cyprus. I already find it a very stimulating experience, and adequate help in what any clarifications that I need.

    These books seem very usefull and helpfull and I am sure that I am going to need them. Distant learning with Leicester University, even if it is still early started making me see working life with a different perspective. I could pursue a better place in the workforce of my country.
