If i complete a PHD online, will it still come with the same relevance as one which i have done in a university?
will i even have to inform employers i did it online?
next, if i travelled abroad to complete my PHD would it still be effective in the UK?
finally, do any of the above affect the title of doctor?
thanks in advance

For the aboard question, it depends on the degree. For example, I am in the field of psychology and I have to go to a BPS accredited university. To the best my knowledge this accreditation obviously covers the UK. So I would check whether the career you want needs accreditation at some point and also, if this extends to other countries. You can also do a non accredited course then do a conversion course to become on the accreditation path.

It really depends on the subject and uni but most good places will not let you do a PhD completely online. You will have to attend training and engage with the department. It's also generally a good idea to do so to get the most out of the PhD.
