The UOC around the world

The UOC is constantly working to extend its global reach and its social impact through teaching and research. We train men and women, professionals and citizens, to understand an increasingly interconnected world. To do so, we work with universities and institutions around the world to offer academic materials able to answer global challenges, promote and support research and research groups with international funding and ensure that our students share classrooms with classmates and teaching staff from diverse backgrounds.

We work with leading international bodies and networks to raise awareness of our experience and knowledge of e-learning and to spread e-learning models to new settings.
To respond to the needs of our international students, the UOC has a centre in Mexico and plans to open another one in Bogot during 2017.
