Balanced Nationality Mix Policy

To promote cultural exchange and an optimal environment to learn English, IIE Hawaii ensures that no nationality represents more than 50% of the total adult student enrollment.

IIE Nationality Mix Policy
50% Limit on Students from Any Country


We strongly believe that a learning environment with a balanced mix of cultures and nationalities is the best and most enjoyable learning experience for studying English abroad. Many English schools, however, have more than 80 percent of students from the same country.

We are proud of the wonderful mix of cultures at our school. To show our commitment to a balanced student mix, we have placed a 50 percent limit on any nationality in our total adult student enrollment (private lessons, Small Group excluded). IIE is the only school in Hawaii with such a guarantee.

We carefully check the numbers, and if necessary, students of particular nationalities are placed on a waiting list if the numbers rise over 50 percent. We kindly ask for your cooperation in working with us to offer the best English learning experience possible.
