Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC)
Modes of study: on-site or online.
The Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC) is a fully accredited online university based in Barcelona with over 70,000 students worldwide. The University welcomes doctoral students who want to develop their research in a highly qualified and international setting and on a doctoral programme that is recognized throughout the European Higher Education Area.
Information and communication technologies (ICTs) arose and have continued to grow and adapt since the mid-20th century. They have gradually crept into all areas of human activity: culture, economy, media, business management, public service management, and even the political system. Analysing how these technologies are used in different contexts and the profound changes they have brought about is key to understanding contemporary society and vital for work and scholarship.
The connections between social, economic, political and cultural systems make it necessary to overcome traditional disciplinary boundaries in order to conduct serious, in-depth analyses. This doctoral programme thus takes an interdisciplinary approach that combines a variety of both theoretical perspectives and methodological tools.
The programme offers the following lines of research:
Admissions from December 1 2019 to February 12 2020
Starting in September 2020
Part-time 5 years or full-time 3 years
English, Spanish or Catalan
On-site at the UOC or online on the Virtual Campus
Fees and funding
Call for grant applications for Doctoral Programmes. The deadline for applications is 12 February 2020.
The UOC is offering grants for the Information and Knowledge Society Doctoral Programme for the 2020/2021 academic year. To be eligible for the UOC Doctoral Grants Programme, students must be full-time and physically present on the University's premises.
The usual duration of the grants is three years, but in some cases they can be extended to a fourth year for postdoctoral work. Grants require annual renewal. Renewal is contingent on 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.
The programme also includes the possibility to develop an industrial doctorate, with grants for the best applicants with agreements with companies. Doctoral students undertaking an industrial doctorate will have a university supervisor and a tutor at the company.
Prospective applicants can find information on the application procedure, and on the content and organization of the doctoral programmes on the website. We recommend that you apply for access and contact the researcher who is in charge of the thesis proposal you are interested in, and send them a letter of introduction.Leer más
