    I just received this letter (response for an email I sent 6 months ago):

    I am contacting you with regard to your recent query / expression of interest in the proposed Distance Learning BA in Philosophy / Applied Philosophy.

    Please see the attached letter from Dr Paul Wright, Head of the School of Cultural Studies, concerning the future of this programme, which should be self-explanatory.

    Dear Applicant

    Distance Learning BA Philosophy / Applied Philosophy

    I am writing to thank you for your interest in the Distance Learning Degree in Philosophy /Applied Philosophy.

    As you may know, the University of Wales Lampeter has recently come together with Trinity University College to form the University of Trinity Saint David; and during a period of considerable structural change, unfortunately, it has been decided not to offer this programme this year as intended. We are currently reviewing all of our provision and we are exploring the possibility of offering a similar applied qualification through a Professional Framework degree level qualification through which work-based experience can be accredited. This may be of interest to you.

    I would like to take this opportunity to apologise if this decision has adversely affected your own plans. I would be happy to discuss it, and likely future opportunities, with you should you so wish.

    Yours sincerely,

    Dr Paul Wright
    Head of School Cultural Studies
