Can I teach English in Dubai without a degree?

In short, yes, it is possible to find an English teaching job in Dubai without a degree, as the United Arab Emirates Ministry of Education allows some teachers to take a TEFL course or equivalent to teach at a lower standard of school, only if the teacher has the required years of experience for the role. However, being qualified to a higher standard - usually a Bachelor’s or Master's Degree - is necessary to work in any kind of private international school or language school.
