Emirates Unity School admissions, reviews, notes

Emirates Unity School reviews - add yours here.

Not to be confused with Arab Unity School in Dubai (AUS), a different school with no obvious connection to EUS.

Emirates Unity School UAE (EUS, EUSU) does not exist as far as we know [Yet? Perhaps opening soon? Error with name?], however there are job advertisements and successful applicants are being sent job offer letters.

School is not listed in ADEC directory (Abu Dhabi Education Council) which might mean school directory has not been updated for new schools, or it might mean Emirates Unity School is a fake school, scam or hoax, or it might mean we have been given incorrect information.

Job offer letters contain a number of red flags which should be investigated before assuming the job is real. One is the request to pay visa fees - it is illegal under UAE law for recruitment agencies, companies, and employers to charge employees for visa, work permit, and recruitment costs. Offer letter says "All Employees will pay for their Residence/Work Permits, as a proof of their seriousness to join us, and they have to contact GLOBAL VIEW TRAVELS UAE, in this regard."

They also say about the visa costs "This is in line with the Expatriate Statuary Law of UAE in compliance with the U.N. Terrorism Act." Which is at best a misunderstanding by them, or at worst, deliberately misleading. There is no such law in the UAE.

Date established, website, landline contact number, school owner's name, not found or provided.

Postal address provided is PO Box 5662, Abu Dhabi, also belongs to Abu Dhabi National Academy (ADNA), another institute we can't find, nor is it listed with ADEC. Or it belongs to Lowrance or Lorance Marketing Consulting in Abu Dhabi, which is (or was) a real company but unknown what connection, if any, it has to either school mentioned above.

We strongly suggest you make every effort to try to contact the school itself in Abu Dhabi to verify it exists or is a new school under construction, and make it clear to them that you do not want to break the law in the UAE regarding payment of visa and recruitment costs.

Or contact ADEC and ask them if the school exists or is being developed - there are a number of new schools opening in Abu Dhabi.

The lack of a landline telephone number is a red flag also although it can happen that a new school only has mobile contact numbers while waiting for landline connections to be made. Mobile number given as 00971567168254 (+971567168254, +971-56-7168254, 056-7168254, 0567168254).

We find it unusual that a school offering such a high salary and excellent benefits (better than almost any school in the UAE) for a teaching job is so difficult to find, and is requesting successful job applicants to pay for visa fees. We don't know of any existing school in the UAE that does that, at least not the reputable ones which are worth considering for a teaching job.

If the job offer letters come from the same organisation that has sent previous similar letters for jobs at fake schools or fake jobs, then what usually happens if an applicant sends the visa fees requested is that they hear no more about or from the school and the teaching job, and their money has gone. Reporting the theft to the police in the UAE is relatively ineffective, there seems to be not very much they can do since the money appears to end up being sent out of the UAE. These job scams keep appearing regularly, and have done for many years now.

Please contact us if any of this information is incorrect, and send us updated details about website, landline tel number, fees information, opening date of school, curriculum information, age groups accepted, link to ADEC directory listing or contact person name at ADEC so we can verify school has an operating licence. And a location map so we can go and visit it and correct the information on this page.
