LONDON/BOSTON 9 Dec 2019: Pearson, the world’s learning company, today announced a partnership with Shorelight, a leader in international education that provides life-changing experiences for international learners at US universities.

The partnership will offer PTE Academic as an English language test option across Shorelight’s many programs, applicants, and partner universities. Shorelight partners with top-tier universities to build innovative degree programs and provide high-touch services that support students from the application process to graduation — and beyond.

PTE Academic is a leading global English language test, taken by people looking to study or work abroad who need to prove their English language skills for acceptance to university or for migration. It is already accepted by thousands of universities and academic programmes in the USA, including Columbia, Harvard, NYU, Princeton, and Yale.

“We know PTE Academic is becoming the preferred test for many students,” said Meredith Stokes, US recognition director, PTE Academic. “Our partnership with Shorelight will enable us to reach wider numbers of USA-bound students and leading universities. Shorelight works with a wide-ranging partnership of leading US universities, many of whom recognize PTE Academic already, and we look forward to partnering with them to open up the option of using our test across the others.”

“We are partnering with PTE Academic to give students access to as many channels as possible to take a secure English test,” said Ben Woody, assistant director, Admissions at Shorelight. “While PTE continues to grow their global footprint, our partnership will increase opportunities for students to discover, study and achieve a degree from top-ranked universities in the United States.”
