Duoc UC

UNEVOC Centre (Training provider) since 2017

Duoc UC is a private, professional, nonprofit institute, founded in 1968 by the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile. It is one of the biggest and more important institutions of higher education in Chile, with more than 100,000 students, 9 schools and 70 programs. Its 19 campuses are located in the 5 more developed regions of the country.

Duoc UC is focused on the model of "learn by doing", aligning study programs with the industry needs and providing the students with the most modern facilities. Its educational programs facilitate the inductive methodology and emphasize the practical aspects of the learning process. Duoc UC academic project seeks excellence in quality, which implies the provision of social, labor and cultural education to all students.

For Duoc UC, the value of its graduates is measured by their productivity, and thus by their competences. For this reason the development of the curriculum is based on information provided by the industry, with whom Duoc UC maintains a close relationship. To ensure that the curriculum stays up to date with the labor market needs, the schools have business councils comprised of industry representatives.

In 2016, Duoc UC received the ICARE Award. ICARE is a private non-profit corporation that seeks to foster Chilean entrepreneurship. This award -one of the most remarkable of the country -was given to Duoc UC for its long and significant contribution to the development and progress of Chile, delivering technical and professional education of excellence to thousands of people, thus being an effective tool for social mobility.

In 2017 Duoc Uc was granted once again the accreditation for 7 out of 7 years by the comision Nacional de Acreditacion CNA (National Accreditation Agency), which certifies the quality of the educational project and its relevance among the rest of the Chilean institutions of higher education. Besides, Duoc Uc is the first TVET institution in Chile to be accredited 7 out of 7 years in the area of COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT.
