Access and admission

Access and admission

If you are thinking of applying for a doctoral programme, it is vital that you choose the line of research you want to pursue and contact the lead researcher with whom you will have to prepare your candidature.

There are two forms of admission for UOC doctoral programmes. In each case, admission depends on a favourable decision from the corresponding programme’s academic committee: 




  •  To apply for admission, follow the steps indicated for your chosen programme.  


Once you have applied, you will be able to find more detailed information on the admission procedure in Procedures> Doctoral programme admissions documentation on the Virtual Campus.

Via the form, you will need to tell us if you wish to apply for a UOC grant and attach all the relevant documentation – both academic and admissions documentation. 



  •   A competitive grant: Consult Other grants section.
