Study in Hawaii, and find the best universities in Hawaii.

Hawaii is the most recent to join of the 50 US states and the only one to be made up entirely of islands. Situated in the mid-Pacific, Hawaii has a diverse population with Asian, American and native influences.

Made up of eight main islands, Hawaii is an extremely popular tourist destination. With plenty of amazing wildlife and animals (many of which only exist in Hawaii), sandy beaches, volcanoes and a rich culture, Hawaii is a great place to study topics such as natural sciences or anthropology.

Who wouldn’t want to become an international student in a tropical paradise?

Study in Hawaii?

Universities in Hawaii tend to have campuses on the islands and mainland USA. The main university in Hawaii is the University of Hawaii System, but several private universities also offer undergraduate degrees in Hawaii too. Some of the universities where you can study in Hawaii include: 

Undergraduate degrees in Hawaii take between two to four years to complete depending on the qualification you choose. Associate degrees generally take two years to complete with Bachelor degrees taking four, although this varies depending on the subject and mode of study.

Immigration and visas

Before travelling to the USA to study, you will need to apply for a non-immigrant visa for study in Hawaii.

The most common kind of student visa is the F-1 visa, which entitles the holder to study at any US accredited college or university.
To apply for a student visa, you will need to fill out an application form (found on the US Embassy website) and send appropriate documentation, such as evidence of financial standing and proof of university acceptance and academic qualifications, as well as possibly attending a visa interview at the US Embassy in your home country.

Accommodation and living costs

Most international students coming to Hawaii will choose to live in dedicated student accommodation provided by your university. This will allow you to settle into university life and meet fellow students more easily.  The easiest way of securing student accommodation in Hawaii is to contact the housing department of your chosen institution.

As a major tourist destination, there is plenty of accommodation in Hawaii if you decide to live privately. However, it is still worth contacting your institution first to find out about suitable areas to live. Bear in mind that private accommodation will normally be more expensive than that provided by the university.
