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 UOC is offering grants for the Information and Knowledge Society Doctoral Programme for the 2021/2022 academic year.
These grants are only available to full-time students working on-site at the UOC.
The standard period that the grant covers is three years, and the grants are subject to an annual renewal. This renewal depends on the students' meeting the learning and research objectives established in each particular case. One of these objectives is to complete the thesis in no more than 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.
