Location of Teaching Positions

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.

Ras Al Khaimah – Its name can be translated as “top of the tent” at the northern-most point of the UAE. It boasts many beaches, islands and its own airport.It is quickly becoming a tourist destination in its own right.

Dubai: Home to an impressive number of ancient attractions and modern amenities. Known for its extensive shopping options (luxurious shopping centres, enormous boutiques and markets), Dubai draws in millions of tourists each year. While living in Dubai, teachers will experience a unique combination of traditional Middle Eastern ways of life and an upscale expatriate lifestyle.

Fujairah: An emirate on the east coast of the United Arab Emirates, lying along the Gulf of Oman. It's known for its beaches and the Hajar Mountains, which run through much of the emirate. For many tourists and visitors, Fujairah is a laid-back relief after the bustle of Dubai. For Emirati locals, it's a favourite weekend escape. 

Umm Al Quwain - One of the quieter, more rural emirates in the UAE with the smallest population. Despite its many and natural landscape and wildlife attractions, international tourism is not highly developed in Umm Al Quwain, but it is popular with visitors from the region.

Ajman - Smallest of the 7 emirates, Ajman is centrally located on the western coast of the United Arab Emirates. It is a more relaxed and low key region with pretty, palm-lined sandy beaches.
