International Student Initiative

World ORT has a long and proud tradition of welcoming and educating people from all over the world. Bramson ORT College is continuing that tradition in the United States and its mission by pursuing a new initiative to recruit and educate students from all over the world in the melting pot of the United States – New York City.

Nelson Mandela, former President of South Africa, who was attending the opening of an ORT facility in South Africa, referred to ORT as an institution that helps individuals grow and become an asset to their community and country.  The new International Student Initiative is in keeping with the past initiatives that Nelson Mandela referred to.  He said, “One tool that will enable people to rise above their circumstances is education, particularly education that leads to the acquisition of useful and marketable skills.”   He also stated, “Technology education is the foundation stone on which we must build… ORT’s initiative could not therefore have come at a better time.”

Our first regional initiative is Africa. According to UNESCO, around two-thirds of the population in Africa is under 25-years-old, a vast majority lack higher education and job skills. Contributing to African youth high unemployment, is the dearth of colleges and technical schools needed to train young people in today’s competitive technological market place.

Irina Bokova, the Director General of UNESCO said, “The best answer to youth unemployment is to ensure that young people acquire the basic skills and relevant training they need to enter the world of work with confidence. Many youth, and women in particular, need to be offered alternative pathways to education, so that they gain the skills to earn a living, live in dignity and contribute to their communities and societies.”

Bramson ORT College is recruiting students from a number of African countries beginning with Ghana. Ghana is the initial pilot country, because of the high youth population who do not have access to higher education in Ghana or abroad. Bramson ORT College will give African students affordable education packages to attend 2-year programs and receive an Associate Degree, enabling them to achieve the education and skills needed for the job market, to go back home to work, start a business, teach or transfer to a 4-year college in the U.S. to further their education. Bramson ORT has a fast track three semester program allowing students to complete a degree program in 18 months.

Bramson ORT College offers a quality education at an affordable price, additionally a number of scholarship opportunities exist for those who demonstrate a strong academic potential. Bramson Ort has also assigned a dedicated Admissions Advisor to help International students navigate the school application process and the visa application process. The admission office can be contacted at 718 261-5800 extension 1010, or contact

Louis K Fosu is a consultant to the College for the African initiative. Mr. Fosu is a foreign policy expert for Africa, works as a consultant advising African officials, U.S. government officials, and NGOs. Louis Fosu received his B.A., from the John Jay College-CUNY, M.B.A. from Pace University, and Juris Doctorate from Georgetown Law School.
