Senior Lecturer – English and Foundation Studies

City University College in partnership with Ulster University, Qatar (CUC) is a new, modern and dynamic educational institution with big ambitions to become one of the leading providers of higher education and skills development in Qatar. Located in the heart of the capital, Doha, CUC currently offers a range of full- and part-time vocational and undergraduate programmes with plans to expand the portfolio of courses (including postgraduate qualifications) from September 2021.

Ulster University is one of the leading universities in the UK and has a national and international reputation for excellence, innovation and research. Its Business School is the 6th largest in the UK with over 5000 students.

English and Foundation Studies are a major part of the University’s academic portfolio and this presents an exciting opportunity for someone to help shape a curriculum that meets the demands of the future workforce, including Qatar’s National Vision 2030. The position will include the coordination of, and teaching on, our International Foundation Studies Programme, as well as leading and coordinating English language and development courses.

This is an exciting time for the University, with a planned new campus building due to be completed by 2023*.  The State of Qatar is a great place to live and work. It is a very safe, family-friendly country with an expanding education sector, aligned to Qatar’s 2030 National Vision.
