For 60 years, The Institute of International Education (IIE) has had a strong presence in the East Asia and Pacific region. IIE’s first-hand knowledge of local educational communities as well as decades of experience working with people from all backgrounds and cultures in East Asia and the Pacific have enabled us to cultivate a broad network of relationships among government, non-profit, and academic sectors.


IIE’s offices in Beijing, Hong Kong, Hanoi, Bangkok, Dili, and our partner office in Jakarta, permit the Institute to custom tailor programs to meet the needs of a particular geographic area. This not only ensures cultural sensitivity, but also helps IIE meet the unique needs of the various partners and students in the region.


Scholarship Management

IIE specializes in the management of undergraduate and graduate scholarships for students in the East Asia and Pacific region.

English Language Programs and Testing

IIE currently designs, implements, and manages English language programs across a broad spectrum of areas and expertise. Services range from intensive English placement for university students to overseeing English language testing services on behalf of Educational Testing Service (ETS).
