Seeking Sessional Lecturers to teach
Business, Economics, History, Sociology, Humanities, Shakespeare and Creative Writing

FIE: Foundation for International Education is an international educational organisation working in partnership with universities and colleges in the US to provide immersive study abroad programs for undergraduate students in London, Dublin, and Amman.

In preparation for expected increases in enrolments in Winter/Spring 2022 FIE London is currently seeking to contract qualified, enthusiastic, and confident sessional instructors to teach undergraduate courses in a variety of subjects, including Business, Economics, History, Sociology, Humanities, Shakespeare and Creative Writing.

The ideal instructor will have a PhD (or be near to completion) in a directly related field and have experience of teaching at the undergraduate level. FIE classes are delivered to undergraduates from a variety of institutions, predominantly American universities. The ideal candidate will therefore have experience teaching American university undergraduates at a range of levels. Faculty are responsible for all aspects of course preparation, teaching, and assessment.

The essence of FIE's teaching and learning strategy lies in using the location of London in creative ways so as to enable students to develop subject-specific and intercultural competencies. We are interested in experiential education, which may be achieved through research projects and independent studies, academic internships, and service internship placements. We assist our students to become more reflective and to develop their analytical and presentational skills. By understanding a foreign culture, students should gain new perspectives on their own. Therefore, anyone who teaches a subject with us would have to be willing and able to incorporate field trips, site visits, guest lectures, and other experiential components as part of their teaching delivery strategy.

Interviews will be undertaken on a rolling basis and we would like to hear from interested parties by the end of November 2021.

To apply please send your CV and a cover letter (detailing your teaching philosophy and background) to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. In your covering letter, please indicate which of our London Courses you would be interested in teaching.

Please note that instructors at FIE work as independent contractors and must be registered, or be able to register, as self-employed in the UK. Those on a VISA may not be eligible for self-employment
