Student Make Up:
Regional Info:
Abu Dhabi is the largest of the United Arab Emirates with over 80 percent of the land mass, and is also its capital. There are a number of cities in Abu Dhabi including (somewhat confusingly) Abu Dhabi city, the oasis city of Al Ain and the emerging cities of Liwa, Al Ruwais and Madinat Zayed. Whilst its near neighbour Dubai often gets the spotlight for tourism, Abu Dhabi has just as much to offer the international teacher. Abu Dhabi City has restaurants, clubs, and world class sporting events. Al Ain is a beautiful garden city that is literally an oasis sitting 1 hr from both Dubai and Abu Dhabi cities. Liwa is also an oasis city, and Al Ruwais is a planned city towards the western edge of Abu Dhabi that sprang up in the 1970s to harvest the abundant oil and gas on which the finances of Abu Dhabi are dependent. Teachers wishing to live and work in Abu Dhabi will find it a relatively easy place to live and work. They should be culturally aware and professionally flexible; and in turn they will be rewarded with a more authentic cultural experience in this influential, vibrant and western-friendly country.
