Join our faculty


Foundation Academy of Amsterdam is looking for freelance scholars/teachers/professors who are interested to help us with establishing new divisions, faculties/colleges and curriculums based on distance education in any field of their specialty. Our goal is to provide cheaper and even free of charge education for Africa, Asia and less privileged migrants in Europe and around the world, therefore Foundation Academy of Amsterdam needs voluntary scholars who are willing to teach and mentor students from the developing nations, and through this way helping the poor nations develop through academic knowledge and skill.
