A very warm welcome to the Ministry of Education’s English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI) Department from all the Team.

This website is intended to provide you with information on our work, your responsibilities and, if you are joining us from overseas, some general information about living and working in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).  Please note, we are not able to answer questions about your Visa status, Offer of Employment, Employment Contract or Terms and Conditions of Employment.  You should direct these questions to your Agency or your contact in the Recruitment Team.

It is a good idea to do your own research into the Emirates before you arrive.  A good place to start is the Hayyakom website.  Hayyakom is an initiative which has been set up by the Government to raise awareness of Emirati culture, particularly amongst teachers.
