Call for grant applications for the Education and ICT (e-learning) ( ) Doctoral Programme coming soon (1 December 2018). Prepare your application in advance. The deadline for applications is 12 February 2019.

The UOC is offering grants for the Education and ICT (e-learning) Doctoral Programme for the 2019/2020 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 Education and ICT doctoral programme focuses on online teaching and learning, the institutional or social framework, and technology-mediated online education systems, in general, in any geographic or cultural setting. It is open to any innovative research that involves the use of ICT in education. With this in mind, the programme supports interdisciplinary work that covers fields as diverse as psychology, pedagogy, computer engineering, law, tourism, economics, mathematics or the humanities, among others.

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, after which students can apply for a further one-year postdoctoral grant.

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.

The Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC) is a fully accredited online university based in Barcelona and serving over 60,000 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 valid in the European Higher Education Area.

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 contact the researcher who is in charge of the thesis proposal you are interested in ( ), and send them a letter of introduction.
