Teaching at Colleges, Universities and Institutes in Oman

 

The majority of all college and university classes in Oman and other countries in the Arabian Peninsula are taught in English. This has resulted in many teaching opportunities for teachers from every country in the world who have a high level of English. Those teachers who have English as a first language are highly sought after although good second language speakers can also obtain a teaching position.

 

For general courses (engineering, science, communications, IT, medicine, etc.) advertisements indicate they are looking for PH. D. candidates, but they also fill some of those positions with people who have a master’s degree. These teachers are hired directly by the universities or the Ministry of Higher Education. To find out jobs available in the colleges or universities, check the websites of each individual university and contact the university even though they might not have a job listed as there is usually a high turn over of staff and hiring is done year round. (English language teaching positions in the bachelor degree programs are much better than the English teaching opportunities in the Foundation year.)

 

Because English is the teaching medium and students have a low level of English, all students are required to do one year of English, mathematics and IT before they can begin actual university studies. This extra year is called the Foundation Year and means all students study five years for their bachelor’s degree. Consequently, the demand for English teachers is very high. All of the colleges and universities listed below have a Foundation Year. The new requirement for foundation teachers is Master’s degree in Linguistics but sometimes they will accept other related degrees, English, communication or another related area). Teachers who do not have an English background may also teach if they have taken a course in teaching ESL such as Delta, CELTA, CELTYL or TESOL which gives them a teaching certificate. Most institutions require a minimum of 2 years teaching experience in order to be considered for a position.

 

Age is also a new issue in hiring practices. Some colleges advertise they will not take anyone over 55- others 58 or possibly 60. This rule and others are sometimes ignored if the school does not have sufficient teachers. Those teachers who may be older or who do not have the masters in Linguistics are sometimes hired in late October or December when new semesters begin and the school is desperate for teachers.
