    My question is how can a person, Master in English Literature, avail a teaching job in UAE or Saudi Arabia. Do these countries accept foreigners ?

    Do you have any English teaching experience in addition to your Masters?

    Most, though by no means all, jobs in the UEA look for experience and native speakers. And the better paying jobs do require experience and good qualifications.

    TEFL jobs in the UAE are often advertised online so you can start checking and applying for work through these ads to see how it goes. (Unlike many other countries, it’s not really a good idea to go there on spec for work.)

    I would never say never, Joni, but I think you would be extremely lucky to find work in a school without a degree in Dubai. Countries in the Middle East pay good money and expect well qualified and experienced teachers.

    What kind of experience do you have?

    Hi Jack,

    Typically teaching positions in the Middle East require you to have a Bachelor degree, teaching license and a year or two of teaching experience. I recommend visiting https://www.teachaway.com/ and browse their job board for positions in the UAE – they recruit for a LOT of jobs in that area and it will give you a better idea of what’s required to teach there.

    Good luck!
