Announcement of grants for foreign students to study subjects in Catalan Language and Literature with the UOC

Language.  Barcelona,  19/01/2018

The Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (Open University of Catalonia, UOC), in collaboration with the Institut Ramon Llull, is announcing two enrolment grants for students from foreign universities with the aim of them being able to study two subjects in the UOC’s Catalan Language and Literature degree during the period running from the second semester of the 2017-18 academic year to the first semester of the 2018-19 academic year.

The subjects of the Catalan Language and Literature degree that are covered by the grant are as follows:

Catalan language: structure and use (teaching begins February 2018 and September 2018)
Literature, culture and society (teaching begins February 2018 and September 2018)
Medieval Catalan literature  (teaching begins February 2018 and September 2018)
Literature, culture and society in Catalonia (teaching begins February 2018 and September 2018)
Contemporary Catalan fiction (teaching begins September 2018)
Catalan poetry (teaching begins September 2018)
The Avant-garde and literature in Europe and Catalonia (teaching begins February 2018)
Catalan cultural studies (teaching begins February 2018)
Catalan sociolinguistics (teaching begins February 2018)

All the subjects are each worth 6 ECTS credits and last for one academic semester (February-June or September-January). Some are taught every semester, while others are taught every other one. The teaching semester or semesters are indicated next to the subject, in brackets. The selected students will be able to study the two subjects chosen in one single semester (February-June 2018) or in two consecutive semesters (February-June 2018 and September 2018-February 2019).

The subjects are taught online, in the UOC campus, following an educational model focused on the student and their learning process. One of the fundamental aspects is the design of the activities that students have to do throughout this process. Three essential elements of these activities should be mentioned. Learning resources, collaboration and accompaniment (see a video here about the UOC virtual classroom).
