Spain: Four Week Education Program in Canary Islands

2018 Summer Programme is now OPEN for applications (Geotenerife)

Deadline for applications is 3 March 2018

Want to spend a month in the Canaries working alongside the experts at the Canary Island Volcanology Institute (INVOLCAN)? There are different programmes to choose from, covering a range of disciplines. Most of them are based in Tenerife, but some of them are split between a week of lab work in Tenerife and three weeks on another island (Lanzarote, El Hierro or La Palma), whereas others involve 4 weeks in La Palma (although you still need to fly to and from Tenerife for introductory lectures and graduation and we transfer you to and from the neighbouring island). They will run from June to September. The deadline for applications is 3 March 2018. Successful candidates will be contacted by 17 March 2018.  Open to undergraduates and recent graduates from relevant fields of study of any nationality.

This is a fantastic opportunity to learn a range of skills, attend exclusive lectures from leading experts and gain experience working alongside seasoned professionals out in the field and in the lab on at most a 2:1 basis. All teaching is in English, and there will be a minimum of 180 contact hours a month with professional scientists as part of the programme.
