FIE offers unrivalled, life-changing study abroad programmes for US undergraduate students in the UK, Ireland and Spain.

We advance sustainable thinking, enabling students to positively impact their community, society and the wider world.

FIE London is currently seeking to contract qualified, enthusiastic, and confident sessional instructors to teach undergraduate courses in Business and Economics. For autumn 2024, we are particularly looking for an instructor to teach International Trade (economics).

The ideal instructor will have a relevant postgraduate degree, doctorate preferred, in a directly related field (such as economics), and have experience of teaching at the undergraduate level. Experience teaching American undergraduates at a range of levels is preferred as FIE classes are delivered to undergraduates from a variety of institutions, predominantly American universities. Faculty are responsible for all aspects of course preparation, teaching, and assessment.

FIE’s courses are designed so that students can actively participate in their host country’s culture. All courses are supported by co-curricular activities (field trips, site visits, guest speakers, interactive experiences) that foster community connection and understanding. By discovering and experiencing knowledge beyond the classroom students shape their own perspective of the world. Anyone who teaches for us must be willing and eager to use the location of London in creative ways, incorporating experiential components as part of their teaching delivery strategy.

On the International Trade course, students examine the major issues in international trade and commercial policy and are exposed to their real-world applications which derive and illustrate models of international trade.  The course covers rationales and benefits of international trade, protectionism, the political economy of commercial policy, international trade and development, and economic integration and world trade. 


A course outline is available here.

Hours for course: 42 contact hours.

Pay for this course: £3725

Term dates: 2 September to 18 October, teaching two sessions per week

Interviews will take place in London on a rolling basis.


This is a sessional fixed term contract for services and not employment. Candidates 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.
