Would anybody be willing to share how much they make as an English teacher (don't have to mention which program) at Zayed University?

You've got to be joking Dominic-Pax! No-one in their right mind would post their salary and terms and conditions on a public forum like this.
If you have been accepted by ZU, as you have said previously, then presumably an offer will be forthcoming based on your qualifications and experience.

He's interested neither in joking nor speculating!

It's true, it's true! Just the facts, ma'am!

I don't think it is dangerous for a person to anonymously share a salary range.

Twenty large?At least you'll be able to save a bit as they're moving all the ZU staff out of the big fig to the new campus.

Pardon? Could you translate that?

When Zayed went through the accreditation process, salary and terms were supposed to be posted and transparency; and fair labor practices were to be maintained and there were a number of other issues. Still, Zayed is considered one of the best employers in the Gulf.

Salaries for MA + 3 years of teaching experience for the ABP start at around 14,500 AED / month. Benefits are about the same for all the universities -- housing, roundtrip airfare every year, and an initial 30,000 AED "furniture" allowance. Vacation is officially 40 days per year (but can add up to more depending on how the terms and holidays fall). Contracts are usually for 3 years. At the end of each contract you get paid a bonus of one months salary for each year worked.

Teaching in the "Bridge" is 20 contact hours a week with between 16 and 22 students in a classroom.

Would an offer at ZU at around 15,500 be a good deal? Is it enough money for a person with a simple lifestyle to save?

Anyone with a simple lifestyle could manage on 15500 a month. With 20 contact hours a day and 22 students, you won't have much time in the evenings to fritter away the money. There are cheap eats in Dubai to explore and activities there that are less expensive than mall cruising ... camping, free beaches and wadi bashing. A four-wheel drive is an investment, but it gets you out of the mall scene.

A single person with a simple lifestyle... assuming that you mean usually eating at home... skipping the pub/party scene... not a shop-till-you-drop type - could save 75+% of their income if they want to. It is all about priorities.

I agree. And that can include eating out once a week and having lunch at a fast food joint daily.

15500 seems awfully low - what is this based on? How many years of experience and qualifications?
But yes, you can live well on that and save.

Hello,

Just wanted to ask you all if I'd be qualified to work at Zayed with a Delta, DoS experience, and 7 years' experience?

From what I've read and been reading it seems they require an MA TESOL.

Any advice on where I could look for good employers would be appreciated. I've been reading this forum for a few weeks now (I just moved from Ukraine back to the States) and it seems there are very few good schools/uni's to work for.

Thank you for your opinions!

Check my response to your PM. That would answer this question for you. I expect that ZU is more strict about the related MA requirement than most because they are small and get lots of applications.
