The call for grant applications for the Information and Knowledge Society Doctoral Programme; Education and ICT (e-learning) Doctoral Programme, and Network and Information Technologies Doctoral Programme is open.
The deadline for applications for the doctoral programmes is 31 January 2017. The UOC is offering grants for these three doctoral programmes for the 2017/2018 academic year.
To be eligible for the UOC Doctoral Grants Programme students must be full-time and physically present at the University’s premises.
The grants normally cover three years, but in some cases they can be extended to a fourth year of postdoctoral work. Grants require annual renewal. Renewal is contingent on the students achieving the training and research objectives established in each case. One of these objectives is to complete the doctoral thesis within a maximum of three years, after which students can apply for a further one-year postdoctoral grant.
The programmes offer the chance to study for an industrial doctoral degree, with grants for the best applicants with agreements with companies. Doctoral students studying an industrial doctoral degree will have a university supervisor and a tutor at the company.
The UOC is a fully accredited online university based in Barcelona and serving over 60,000 students worldwide. The University welcomes doctoral students who want to develop their research in a top-level, international setting and on a doctoral programme that forms part of the Bologna process.
Prospective applicants can find information on the application process and on the content and organization of each doctoral programme on the website:
