IIE Hawaii is perfectly located in Waikiki so that Cambridge students can make the most of their time... study hard, then enjoy the beach just steps away. An authorized official Cambridge Preparation Center, the school offers courses in the First Certificate in English (FCE) and the Certificate in Advanced English (CAE) three times a year.

The Cambridge ESOL Examinations are recognized by over 13,000 employers and universities around the world. Additionally, through a unique agreement with University of Hawaii's Kapiolani Community College (KCC), students accepted into IIE Hawaii's FCE or CAE courses may also be conditionally accepted into KCC's college courses upon successful completion. See Hawaii Rainbow Pathways page for more information about IIE's special partner programs with KCC.

The FCE is an upper-intermediate level exam, and the CAE is an advanced level exam. Both certificates are challenging, highly-respected assessments of English abilities, and the exam scores are good for life. Our rigorous courses will prepare you with the skills and strategies needed for success on exam day. Extra support is also available for Cambridge students in our Cambridge Boost tutorial program.

All students must take a Cambridge placement exam at IIE prior to the course. Students whose scores are insufficient will be advised about other academic options including the Cambridge Boost program.
Students changing between FCE and CAE after arrival should consider possible differences in exam dates and plan their stay accordingly.

The courses below require an F1 Student Visa. Link: Student Visa Information Website
