Abstract: Like any other organisation, even if still very young, the UOC is developing in stages. It is a university that has emerged from the knowledge society (I would go so far as to say the advanced knowledge society), in which internal changes are at all times faster than external changes. It is a university for a constantly-changing world and for an Internet world, which it manages with calm, courage and intelligence. In its almost eleven years of existence, the UOC has become a reality that is continuously adapting to society's needs, and especially to those of its country. It is a University where the students are the centre of the learning process, which continues throughout their life, when they need it and are able to do it; a University that has undoubtedly made a firm commitment to research and innovation in methodology as its reason for being; and which has also addressed its internationalisation. A commitment which assumes and preserves its identity and the reason that determined its creation.
