KAUST in Thuwal, Saudi Arabia - A Little Piece of America!

I do have my Master's degree. Possibly working at a University is an option. I have always wanted to eventually teach at the college level, however, I truly enjoy teaching my Kindergarteners! I came across the King Abdullah Univeristy, which is near to Jeddah. After reading the article below, it seems like the most "western" part of Saudi Arabia. Here is that article:

These are some of the perks of working at KAUST
1. All 3 children tuition for schooling will be paid
2. All housing will be paid, and is a stand alone family sized house (so beautiful!)
3. Women can drive inside the gates of the University
4. A Lab school exists on the campus, which houses Early Childhood and Kindergarten classes (I could possibly teach Kindergarten here!)
5. KAUST pays for all the Visa process for the family
6. Airfare is paid for the family
7. Huge parks and family events happen often on campus

Here is a video of the housing:

Here are some other nice blogs from internationals living in Saudi Arabia

*update* I had an interview with this school but was not offered a job. The reason: I was not familiar with and had not taught in the EYP or IB before. Oh, well......

  1. Hello Everyone

    I want to give thanks and a great appreciation to this company who made it possible for me to upgrade my family business i was stuck in a financial situation and i needed to refinance my business and pay my bills. Until i met this lender who helped me out with the required capital loan $145,000.00.USD. If you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan with low interest rate of 2% and better repayment plans and schedule. please contact this company at for a fast and safe loan.
