US universities are embracing a new initiative to streamline the admissions process for international students by validating TOEFL test scores through their Indian study-abroad partners. This collaboration between Educational Testing Service (ETS) and Career Mosaic, a leading student recruiter for US universities in South Asia, marks a significant milestone in ensuring the credibility and efficiency of the student enrollment process.

TOEFL, the Test of English as a Foreign Language, serves as a standardized assessment of English language proficiency for non-native speakers seeking admission to English-speaking universities worldwide. Recognized by more than 12,000 institutions in over 160 countries, including popular study destinations like the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, TOEFL holds universal acceptance among universities globally.

With this partnership, US universities gain access to validated TOEFL scores, enhancing the credibility of student profiles and reducing administrative burdens. This development not only strengthens the trust in TOEFL scores submitted by applicants but also fosters a smoother transition for students pursuing higher education opportunities in the USA.

Sachin Jain, country manager of ETS India and South Asia, expresses enthusiasm for the collaboration, highlighting its commitment to providing reliable solutions for evaluating English language proficiency. This sentiment is echoed by Manisha Zaveri, joint managing director at Career Mosaic, who emphasizes the integrity and credibility of TOEFL scores verified through this association.

For universities like Webster University USA, the validation of TOEFL scores represents a significant advancement in streamlining the admission process. By eliminating the need for English proficiency score verification, universities can focus on facilitating a seamless and reliable admissions experience for both students and institutions.

The surge in TOEFL test-takers in India, constituting over 12% of the global total, underscores the growing demand for higher education opportunities abroad. As international travel resumes post-pandemic, this collaboration between ETS and Career Mosaic sets a promising precedent for enhancing the accessibility and reliability of English language proficiency assessments for aspiring students worldwide.
