The UOC is a university seeking to offer a public service by enabling as many people as possible to get a university-level education. This is why there is no minimum number of credits for enrolment.

_____________

* Public prices. The public prices for credits and other academic services charged by public universities in Catalonia (including the UOC) are set by the Government of Catalonia. You can consult the prices approved for the 2021-2022 academic year in Decret 300/2021, from 29 June 2021.

** Because of the type of methods it employs, the UOC must include charges for the materials, technology, services, infrastructure and personalized support that are required to provide its learning activities.

Free insurance for enrolment

By default, the UOC offers free insurance for enrolment to those students taking courses lasting at least one semester who live in Spain (that is those of you who have a Spanish address on your national ID (DNI) or foreigner ID (NIE) card). Thus, if after enrolling you find yourself in a situation covered by the insurance, the University will help you to continue your studies.

The insurance covers students on bachelor's degrees, university master's degrees, specializations, postgraduate courses, UOC-specific master's degrees, open courses, Centre for Modern Languages courses, and diplomatura, enginyeria and llicenciatura programmes.

Surcharges
 

Graduate surcharge

Students who have already completed officially endorsed Spanish university studies at publicly funded centres must pay a surcharge on the credit price if they begin new studies endorsed by the Spanish Ministry of Education. The credit price including the graduate surcharge is calculated by multiplying the credit price by 1.4.

This surcharge does not apply the first time a student studies a university master's degree.

 

Surcharge for repeat enrolments

Students who do not pass a course and enrol on it for a second time must pay a surcharge on the credit price. This surcharge is calculated by multiplying the credit price by 1.2.

The surcharge for students who enrol on a course for a third time is calculated by multiplying the credit price by 2.6. As of the fourth enrolment on a course the credit price is multiplied by 3.6.

 

Surcharge for non-EU nationals

Students without a European Union nationality, Andorran nationality or permanent residency status in Spain are subject to a 50% surcharge on their enrolment fees (not including optional add-ons).
