Does anyone have any information about this university? So far, I have yet to find much information about this place. My friend is telling me that it is a nice place to teach. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Ben

I've taught nearby and it is in a uni area. Maritime, Technology and Finance and Economics Us close by.
It was discussed in a thread a few years back with mixed views but nothing really negative.
That whole area is a technology park with some ultra modern architecture.
Provided it checks out salary, accom, hours and travel allowance I see no issues.
Dalian is nice enough. Winter a bit brisk for my liking but then I'm from milder climes.

I used to teach there...

It isn't a bad place, especially if this will be your first university job in China. I was always paid on time. Lesson planning is shared with all the other foreign teachers, which is helpful if you need ideas (or don't like to write lesson plans). I think a standard full-time schedule is 10 classes (20 hours) per week if you teach only speaking, less if you have writing classes. Seemed to always be opportunities for overtime.

The main thing I disliked about the place was the location. It is in Software Park on top of a hill, so walking on/off the campus took at least 15 minutes. I guess this wouldn't be so bad if you like taking taxis though.

..and then there's the buses. The park is very close to one of the main bus routes into Dalian city.
