I spent 2 weeks in La Laguna last April, thanks to the EMCI exchange programme.
First, you need to know that officially you cannot have any active language other than your mother tongue in La Laguna.
The only possible combinations are ACC and ACCC.
This year however, after much complaining, students have managed to convince the course leaders to organise a "retour class" for the second semester (1:30hrs/week, that's to say almost nothing).
The facilities are not so great. They have about 15 individual booths, which are not sound-proof. So many booths allow all the students to interpret every single speech, but to me it didn't make much sense as most of the time they were interpreting in the ether without anyone listening to them.
They always see the same teachers, seeing as how "isolated" the university is.
Students were also complaining, strangely enough, about having to spend 8 months in the Canary islands, which sounded like an ordeal when I was listening to them.
On the plus side: the teachers are all very nice, most of them seem quite competent, and as a Westminster student, I found that the students' average level was roughly the same as that of London students.
So in my view, it might not be the best school, but it is still a good one.

También he leído en alguna parte que se podía cursar el máster en la Universidad de Vigo y en la de Vic, pero no llego a encontrar nada al respecto en sus sitios web. Puede que lo hayan dejado.
