Adeje Summer University students happy with courses
On the last day of the 2018 Adeje Summer University, as is the norm, participants were asked to fill in a short questionnaire on the courses they attended and evaluate their experience – and yet again the University scored top marks!
According to Adeje education councillor Adolfo Alonso Ferrera and the University of La Laguna (ULL) vice-rector Francisco García, the overall satisfaction rating was higher than last year and students also gave a high approval rating to changes in the modular format on offer this year. One of highest rated courses was that on sign language, with courses in art, literature and the environment also popular.
Interesting data was also available on the profile of students (over 700) who attended the university this year, with over 60% saying they signed up to improve their general knowledge and 23% to improve their CV. 96% of those matriculating were from Tenerife, 34% from Adeje itself, something very important to the local education department as it reflects a positive reception by the people of the borough. More women than men took courses; nearly 40% are employed, 22% looking for work and 23% in full time education.
