Location of IAT schools

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.

Dubai – Famously luxurious Dubai hosts some of the world’s tallest buildings, most high-end dining and shopping, beautiful beaches, and all-around luxury. A hugely popular destination for teaching abroad, Dubai is an experience not soon forgotten.

Ras Al Khaima - Ras Al Khaimah is best known for its dramatic landscape. With the rocky Hajjar Mountains to the east, and the white beaches of the Arabian Gulf to the west, this beautiful Emirate allows teachers to mix a modern lifestyle with traditional experiences.

Fujairah – The Emirate of 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.
