What is Pearson College London?
Pearson College London is the only education provider in the UK that is owned by a FTSE 100 company, Pearson. The two schools, Pearson Business School and Escape Studios, are both based in Holborn, central London.
Pearson College London is in the 10% of all universities in the UK when it comes to graduates who have found full-time work within six months of graduating.
Why apply to Pearson College London?
Pearson College London is deeply connected to the industries students will eventually enter. This means that the courses themselves are designed with input from industry professionals, and you’ll be learning from teachers who have found success in the field you’re studying. The courses themselves are practical and hands-on, rather than heavily theoretical. You’ll learn up-to-date, industry standard information that really prepares you to enter your field of choice.
Pearson’s real-world connections also mean that there are loads of opportunities to get yourself ready for the working world, from internships and work placements to talent development programmes to CV clinics and workshops.
Who isn’t the right fit for Pearson College London?
Pearson College London is about more than just putting your head down and getting through your degree. If you want to make the most of your time, you’ll want to take advantage of the many opportunities for internships, workshops, and other additional learning opportunities. Thus, if you want to spend your university years fully focused on your course, or don’t have time to attend additional opportunities outside of your studies, Pearson College London might not be the place for you.
Pearson College London also offers a focused selection of Business courses and Creative courses, so if you are looking to study a subject that we don't currently offer like a humanities or science-based course, you may not be the right fit.
