UCC has partnerships with many institutions all over the world. CIE is eager to provide assistance with communication with partner organizations.
If you are a full time faculty member and seek a temporary teaching appointment overseas, you must gain approval from the Vice-Chancellor through your Head of Department and Dean of Faculty/School. Arrangements to cover your teaching assignments would need to be made by your Unit Head and Dean.
The ideal time for UCC faculty to teach abroad is in conjunction with a sabbatical leave. A teaching appointment is not incompatible with research, renewal, or teaching enhancement goals for sabbatical projects. With a sabbatical, coverage of the faculty member’s teaching assignments at UCC is already taken care of, and that critical piece is therefore not an issue.
Some faculty members choose to take a leave of absence (leave without pay) for a semester or year in order to pursue a temporary teaching appointment abroad. One concern is that since the faculty member would not be paid by UCC for the particular time on leave, the faculty member must find an overseas teaching appointment that will pay well enough so in-country living expenses are covered (along with any costs associated with maintaining a home and possessions in Cape Coast).
The gold standard for overseas teaching (and research) appointments remains the Fulbright Scholar Program. Hundreds of grants are awarded each year for semester or year-long lectureships around the world. The application system is competitive and all UCC applicants must have an invitation from a host university. Further information is available online.
