About Us

Providing Distance Learning Programs For Over Two Decades

Stafford pioneered the blended learning model in the Middle-East and was the very first provider of Distance Learning education to be established in the UAE in 1993. We are currently the Middle-East Resource Centre for five UK universities who all trust our 20 years expertise in supporting distance learning students. At Stafford, we offer courses in various disciplines including executive MBA, doctorates and diplomas.

Our academic institution has always been led and managed by full time academics starting with our founder, Professor Philip James Marsh, who originates from the UK county of Staffordshire. These strong educational roots explain the superior completion rate achieved by students on the courses we support.
