Are you ready for this summer uni?

ADEJE’S Summer University is celebrating 25 years since it first opened its doors to students in South Tenerife.

The course offer, drawn up by the University of La Laguna and the local council, always has a healthy inclusion of tourism-related topics, given that the industry is the economic motor for these islands.

And this year’s inaugural address will be made today (Friday), in the Adeje Convento at midday, by Carlos Vogeler, executive director for member relations of the World Tourism Organisation.

The Summer University offers a range or courses, many of which can help a student accumulate university credits. But they are also designed with the general public in mind.

The university opens with a course in recognising autism and resources for teachers and families.

Focusing on tourism, you could attend lectures on the “sharing economy – the end of tourism as we know it?”, on communication and democracy in the digital age, on managing the change in tourism governance, finance and digital transformation (in English), or on sports management.

Of more specific interest, there is a course on new developments in surgery, another on art, culture and law, and on vigilance and control of employment benefits.

The range of workshops also sees sessions on tourism-related topics, on learning for highly-intelligent/gifted students, on how to be assertive in public, and on Canarian wines. And another topic relates to how to evolve your talent as a communicator/journalist.

Unless otherwise stated, courses and workshops are in Spanish. The full programme of courses and workshops is online,

The courses are all held during the mornings, from 9am-2pm, and the workshops are scheduled for the afternoons (4-8pm). The courses cost 25 euros and workshops just 10 euros.

To register for one or more of these classes, you can do so online, at, at the University of La Laguna (922 319 616) or in the Adeje Cultural Centre (922 756 246)
