Abstract: The Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC) is an innovative university, based in Catalonia and open to the world, which was created in 1995. The mission of the UOC is to train people throughout their lives, contributing to their progress and to the progress of society, while carrying out research related to the knowledge society. In 2015 the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, an action plan that seeks to address major global challenges and contribute to building a sustainable future. Among the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), SDG 4 seeks to guarantee inclusive, equitable and quality education for all, including university education. At UOC, we are convinced that one of the most effective and efficient ways to contribute to SDG 4 is through quality e- learning. There are several targets linked to SDG 4. For the purposes of this paper we will focus on the one that refers to the commitment to guarantee equitable access to a quality higher education without any discrimination and that mentions the commitment to put in place mechanisms for positive discrimination to certain collectives through scholarship systems.
