Living & Teaching in the United Arab Emirates

The United Arab Emirates consist of seven distinct regions. Of these, Dubai is the most famous – the dazzling world-class city and has quickly become a major hub for expats living abroad. With this government program, public school positions are offered not just in Dubai, but also in Sharjah, Ajman, Ras al-Khaimah, Fujairah, Abu Dhabi and Umm Al-Quwain – every part of the UAE.

Wherever you end up in the UAE, you can expect to be greeted with warmth and be no more than two hours away from downtown Dubai. Teaching in the UAE, it’s very easy to meet new friends, with lots of social events and groups available – everything from sports teams to lively nightlife. We’ve heard from teachers that they like international feeling and the diversity of colleagues they get to know during their time in this country. You are also very likely to meet lots of people from your home country which makes the transition very easy!

We’ve placed over 10k+ teachers overseas, here’s what some of them say
