Location of Al Rowdah Institutes in the UAE
Abu Dhabi City – The capital of the UAE, Abu Dhabi is a world-class cosmopolitan city. With beaches, shopping, nightlife, and dining options to satisfy any personality, Abu Dhabi is an extremely popular destination for teaching abroad.
Al Ain – Located in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, Al Ain is known as the Garden City. Greener and quieter than Abu Dhabi City, Al Ain provides all the conveniences of the city in a more relaxed atmosphere.
Al Gharbia – In the western region of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, Al Gharbia’s largely desert landscape makes up 51% of the UAE’s total land mass. With rich traditions stemming from its Bedouin origins, Al Gharbia allows new residents to experience the ancient customs and the traditions of their host country.
Sharjah – Sharjah is the only Emirate to border both the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman. Located next to Dubai – but with considerably lower living expenses – some people effectively consider Sharjah a suburb of Dubai, although the Emirate boasts its own cultural centers and many outdoor activities.
Fujairah – Fujairah lies on the Gulf of Oman and shares a border with Oman. The youngest of the seven Emirates, Fujairah lies in a mountainous region and provides a quieter, more relaxed experience than that of some of the major cities.
Ras Al Khaimah – The Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah is best known for its dramatic landscape. With the rocky Hajjar Mountains to the east, and the white beaches of the Persian Gulf to the west, this beautiful Emirate allows teachers to mix a modern lifestyle with traditional experiences.
