Location of ADVETI 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.

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 Arabian 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.
