Via Daily Nous. Count me as skeptical about such a venture, though UK PhD programs are quite hands-off anyway. The program is at Staffordshire, which as far as I can tell, has two philosophers heading up the program, Douglas Burnham and David Webb. (Here’s the About Us page, which spends more time on the wonders of Staffordshire, which would-be distance PhDs might never see, than about the program itself.) The department already has an online MA.
