Volcano Monitoring Field School

in association with INVOLCAN and University of La Laguna, Tenerife Spain
21-29 March 2018

Considering a career chasing volcanoes around the globe?
Make sure you have all the skills you need to strengthen that CV!

GeoTenerife is delighted to co-organise this week-long volcano monitoring training course with the Canary Island Volcanology Institute (INVOLCAN) and the University of La Laguna. There are a maximum of 40 places available, which will be granted on a first come, first served basis.

The course is aimed primarily at earth science undergraduate students, but recent graduates are also welcome to apply. The week will include 50 teaching hours and participants will earn 2 ECTS from La Laguna University. All teaching and materials will be in English.

The aim of this course is to introduce students to the subject of Volcano Monitoring “hands on” by alternating lectures with practical laboratory and field activities. Lessons will be given by researchers having an international scientific background and first-hand experience on Volcano Monitoring.

Two field trips will be done at Teide volcano and Las Cañadas caldera and to outcrops of volcanic successions all around the island. The prerequisites for attending this course are basic skills in Earth Sciences, as well as basic knowledge of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry.

This course is an opportunity for you to learn a range of skills and techniques that are fully transferable to the workplace.

Course cost and stipulations

The course runs from 22-28 March. Students from abroad are asked to arrive in Tenerife on 21 March ready for a 9am start the next day. The course finishes at 18:00 on 28th March – students are welcome to stay on that night or fly home after that time on the 28th. No refund will be made if you do not stay the extra night in the hotel. Please note that check out from the hotel is after breakfast, no later than 10am on 29th March.

The week-long course costs €650 (EUROS) per student.

Course cost includes:

– All tuition and field trips
– 8 nights’ shared, half board accommodation (breakfast and evening meal, except on arrival: evening meal only if arriving by 18:00 and departure: breakfast only)
– ABTA cover so your booking is fully protected
– Workplace liability cover and insurance (for incidents or accidents related to the course)
– Coffee breaks

Course cost does NOT include:

– Flights to/from Tenerife
– Transfers to/from the hotel and the airport on arrival and departure. You can fly to either of the two airports in Tenerife – both are well connected by bus or taxi. The North airport (Rodeos) is about 20 minutes from Puerto de la Cruz, and the South airport (Reina Sofía) is about 1 hour and 20 minutes away.
– Lunch
– Health insurance – you must bring your EHIC card (if travelling from the EU) or other medical insurance in case you need attention for any personal health issues

You must be available in Tenerife for the full period stipulated, and attend and participate throughout to qualify for your credits at the end of the week.

Participation on the course implies acceptance of our Field School Terms
and Conditions published on our website. Failure to abide by our T+Cs could result in you being excluded from the course with no refund due, and obliged to make your own arrangements to return home. We are strict on this issue for a very simple reason – our T+Cs are designed for your safety and to maximise learning potential for everyone on the course.

GeoTenerife is an ABTA member, so your booking is fully protected.

To apply

Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and we have a maximum of just 40 places available. Payment in full is required to book, and your place will not be confirmed until your payment has cleared.

Fee includes all tuition, field trips, 8 nights’ half-board, shared accommodation (21-29 March) and coffee breaks. You may, of course, leave after 18:00 on 28 March if you prefer, but no reduction will be made on the inscription price if you stay one less night. Supper will be included on 21 March for those arriving at the hotel by 18:00.

The course requires a minimum of 20 students to run – if less than 20 have signed up by 18 December 2018, your fee will be returned and the course will not run. GeoTenerife will hold no further liability to you. The GeoTenerife website will record how many places are taken/left available.

We therefore suggest you do not book flights or undertake any additional expenses until at least 20 places have been booked.
