The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
The UOC is offering grants 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 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.
