STUDENT GUIDE 2017/2018

Before starting...

Consult the official qualifications currently offered by the UOC and you will be able to choose your studies depending on the goals you want to achieve. Before enrolling, the tutor will guide you on the courses you can choose from and what you should take into account before enrolling.

How are the official qualifications structured at the UOC?

There are different types of course depending on the entrance pathway and the goal to be achieved:

  • Bachelor’s degrees: the first courses for entering university, which provide a general training. The bachelor's degrees have between 180 and 240 ECTS credits and are affiliated with one of the following branches of knowledge: Arts and Humanities, Sciences, Health Sciences, Social and Legal Sciences, Engineering and Architecture. The bachelor’s degree programmes of studies consist of basic subjects (within the branch of knowledge), compulsory subjects and optional subjects, as well as a final bachelor's degree project and an internship in a company or institution.
  • Master's degrees: to take a master's degree, you must first have an official bachelor's degree or equivalent, as its goal is to provide specialized training or promote research. The master's degrees have between 60 and 120 ECTS credits.
  • Doctoral degrees: these are third-cycle courses whose goal is to provide training in quality scientific research and which culminate in the preparation and defence of the doctoral thesis.

The Virtual Campus section More UOC / University / Programmes of study provides information about the courses you must pass to obtain the qualification, the admission requirements, the pathways, the faculty and the skills you will acquire upon completion, among other information.

If you have any doubts about your course's structure and which pathway you should follow, remember that your tutor can provide counselling.

What do I need to do to enrol?

Once you have sent your admission application and before enrolling, you are strongly advised to contact your tutor. If you fill in the personal data survey, the tutor will be able to know you better, know how much time you have and advise you in the choice of courses.

You should also keep some recommendations in mind:

  1. Before completing enrolment, it is important that you make the proposal so that the tutor can validate it. You will find all the information about the courses and those that are offered next semester at More UOC / University / Programmes of study.
  2. It is very important that you look up the times of the final assessment tests before enrolling to avoid any overlaps in the tests for the courses you have chosen, as no time change will be authorized for overlaps except for those cases where justified reasons have been given.
  3. If you have applied for a prior studies assessment because you want to validate your previous studies, do not enrol for any course that may be validated or adapted until you have received the outcome of your application.

You can consult the status of your enrolment process at the link Procedures / Enrolment / Enrolment bachelor's degrees and university master's degrees.
