ETS Signs Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with OHLA English Schools, UniApplyNow

Princeton, N.J. (November 20, 2023) — ETS announced today that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with sister organizations OHLA English Schools and UniApplyNow, which provide English instruction virtually as well as in person, at locations across Florida, to students from 70+ countries. The MoU aims to increase access of the TOEFL iBT® test for international students interested in continuing their higher-ed journeys abroad.

This MoU marks a first of its kind between ETS and an English-language school, a welcome milestone to leverage each organizations’ networks and strengths to support international student mobility on the global scale.

“English-language programs play an important role in the study-abroad ecosystem, as they help build students’ language proficiency skills before they commit to a full-time college or university program abroad,” said Rohit Sharma, SVP of Global Higher Education and Workskills at ETS. “We look forward to leveraging this collaboration to help carry forward our collective missions to advance opportunity for international students to achieve their personal and professional goals.”

As part of this collaboration, access to TOEFL iBT, ETS’s flagship assessment and the world’s most respected and accepted English-language test, will be expanded through scholarship opportunities, an extensive study-abroad agent network, test discounts and more. In addition, students enrolled in OHLA Schools and UniApplyNow programs will have access to exclusive test prep offerings to prepare for the TOEFL iBT test so they can feel confident in their skills on test day.

“We are pleased to have found a partner of the magnitude and reach of ETS. Our primary goal since the inception of OHLA Schools and UniApplyNow, has been to create an environment where international students succeed in every stage of their academic journey,” said Jenny Nieveen, Founder of OHLA Schools and CEO of UniApplyNow. “Having access to the tools and resources ETS offers, can only enhance the experience to students, network of agencies and government entities we work with.”
