STUDENT GUIDE 2021/2022

The Virtual Campus

The Virtual Campus is the environment where learning is conducted and is the habitat of University community life in general. On the Virtual Campus you'll find the virtual classrooms, each with a course instructor and your fellow students, procedures, your personal area, the Help Service, as well as sections for news, ways to get involved in activities and initiatives, and much more besides.

Welcome to the UOC Virtual Campus
To get acquainted with the Campus, we recommend having a look through all the sections.
Starting out

When you first enter the Virtual Campus, you'll see personalized content corresponding to your profile, based on the courses you are taking. If you plan to enrol on an official bachelor's degree or university master's degree, you'll initially have an admission profile, with access to everything you need to know about the UOC. After completing enrolment, we'll activate your student profile, which will give you access to the full range of resources.

If you have been admitted to a postgraduate, vocational training or profession-focused course, you will have direct access to the Campus and the resources it offers as soon as you enrol.

What will you find?

On the Campus you'll have access to all the pages and resources you need for studies, administrative procedures, contacting other members of the University community or addressing any doubts. The Campus is structured in five main areas:

#1 Classrooms
This gives direct access to each course's classroom. Inside each classroom you'll find different sections and resources: the course plan and schedule, the instructions for activities, access to the learning resources, the noticeboard, the forum, and your continuous assessment record, which includes a tool for submitting work and receiving marks and feedback. 

2# Personal area
This is where you'll find everything that’s specific to you: your academic record, your programme of study, the learning resources you've used on your courses, your profile, etc. From here you can also see the status of the payments you've made, update your personal details, or select a different language for the communications you receive from the UOC. You can choose between English, Catalan and Spanish (the UOC's official working languages).

#3 Procedures
This section takes you to administrative procedures such as enrolment, certificate requests, access to grants and discounts, applications for credit recognition based on prior studies or professional experience, and many more which can be found with a simple search.

#4 Library
Link to the website of the UOC Library, where you can request books on loan, check the catalogue, access the UOC O2 repository or ask for assistance from a librarian specializing in the relevant area.

#5 More UOC
Learn more about your university and take part in university life. Find out about students' representative bodies, which cooperation projects we support, how to take part in university sports championships or what courses are currently on offer. There's also a section on employment, where you can see a jobs board or get personalized career guidance.

The Campus also has a news and interview section to keep up to date with the latest goings-on at the UOC. And you'll find all the apps you need to help you organize your schedule and communicate with teaching staff and fellow students, for example your email and calendar.

We'll answer your queries

Our Help Service should provide prompt and useful responses to your questions. The Help Service page is linked in the menu at the top of the Virtual Campus home page and offers a form for sending queries, searchable FAQs ordered by topic, and an area where you can check the status of your existing enquiries.

Alternatively, you can get in touch with our @UOCrespon account on Twitter.

Ways to personalize the Campus

On the Campus home page you can:

  • Configure your modules, getting more by clicking on Add information, dragging them to change their positions, or changing their colours.
  • Select the Campus language, with a drop-down menu that you’ll find in Options in the top right corner of the screen. You can choose between English, Catalan and Spanish. For vocational training and profession-focused courses, the Campus interface will only be available in Spanish.
