- Info: English, Spanish, Catalan, French
An excellent site for anyone considering studying at a Catalan university, whether for a first or a post-graduate degree.
The site includes information on the Universities themselves, the courses they offer (with a search engine), scholarships, the Catalan education system and general information on living in Catalonia
- We liked: An excellent site all round
- Not so hot: Some of the universities themselves could do with following this example of providing information in English.

The Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC), or Open University of Catalonia, is one of Europe’s leading distance or e-learning centres ("the world's best virtual university", it in fact claims). It offers full degree courses in such things as Law and Business Administration as well as degree and other courses in new technology.
Also available on the site is a wide range of articles on e-learning, e-business and other subjects, although generally only the abstracts are available in English.
- We liked: The "collaborative learning" experience of studying there
