Abstract: Likewise, it is a great honour for me given that the UOC is an exceptional university. Indeed, it is unique. The only publicly financed university in the world that works entirely online, offering diplomas to doctorates. It is unique because its programmes focus on the needs of the information society. The UOC continues to increase its student numbers, whilst the number of students at other Spanish universities decreases. In recent times, its programmes have only been on offer in Catalan. So, the UOC is not only successful for what it is, but also for where it is. This link between language, culture and quality distance education is what I want to look at.
