American English teacher
As part of our good cooperation with the US Embassy in Denmark and the Ministry of Education, Culture & Church - this Fall, Ilisimatusarfik and GUX in Nuuk receive a Fulbright student through the so-called ETA programme.
ETA is an abbreviation for English Teaching Assistant - and this means that Ilisimatusarfik and GUX in Nuuk get a Fulbright student who will assist in our English lessons.
At Ilisimatusarfik, this will be at the Institute of Learning.
We are looking very much forward to welcoming the Fulbright student to Nuuk and Greenland, and we are confident that it will be a good success for all parties.
About the ETA programme:
The ETA programme is for Fulbright students, and an ETA person is chosen especially on the basis of qualifications.
An ETA person is not employed and does not get paid - but the student receives a student scholarship from Institute for International Education in the US.
The funding comes from the US Embassy in Denmark.
