The annual Whatuni Student Choice Awards (WUSCAs) highlight the incredible work carried out by institutions for their students. Due to Covid restrictions, this year’s awards were not collected on uni campuses as usual, but instead based on submissions from institutions, which were then judged by our special student panel.
2021 WUSCA winners
Even while being online this year, we have had frequent contact with the uni, weekly emails and meeting with our tutors. Especially access to councillor during these tough times. while our seminars and lectures have gone online, we are still getting 100% from our lecturers and tutors, doing the best they can to help us succeed. (I study the MLaw degree, however, this was not an avaliable option when selecting the course)
Due to covid restrictions, our classes have been online, but it does not take away from the dedication of our tutors and lecturers who provide additional assistance when necessary, with quick email replies.
Overall, the experience has been great despite the challenges the pandemic has bought. The teaching and support available is good and I really enjoy my course. I look forward to my second year.
As students we have access to industry events with guest speakers from large companies and employers. We also have the opportunity to take part in mock interviews and LinkedIn profile sessions. There are team members available to discuss career options, CV’s and Internships.
Due to COVID-19, so far the course has been online but this hasn’t stopped our tutors and lecturers being supportive. All course material is really assessable and we can easily contact our tutors if we have any questions.
The student services team are really helpful. There is lots of mental health and well-being support and if you have any additional learning needs they also ensure that you are accommodated for.
Please please please do not go here. My finance teacher was superb and economics but everything else is such a big red flag. Mediocre teachers , a student services team that seems to be completely incompetent. I have graduated in early this year and not even received a certificate yet. Oh and don't fall for the guaranteed internship scheme , it's completely garbage. You get fast tracked to 'interviews' at crap start ups that most likely won't survive. Luckily I applied elsewhere to hedge my bets ! you're not gonna make it into a bank this this name , no one knows it. if like me, you've fallen pray to the this money grab scheme - do yourself a favor and undertake a masters at a proper russel group uni
tiny tiny university building , they just shove as many students as they can
decent pubs and area
not great - I'm stressed and anxious. I can't wait to finish my degree so I can sleep better at night. Studying has never been harder and again, I'm stressed :(
I think so? I learn a lot more at work than at uni
I like that I don't have to be on campus much but the lectures and seminars aren't very organised. Often our lecturers forget to upload the lectures online. I have 5 pieces of coursework due on the same day - I think that should be illegal.
Not great, very small building and no lecture theatre so you have to sit on chairs like you're in year 5. There's a photocopier so I guess that's good
It's near the tube and close to lots of pubs / bars for when it all gets too much in the middle of the day.
Lecturers and tutors frequently tell the class that we should try our best for a 2:2 - no motivational talk and no 'aim high' mindset. I'm afraid that if I went to counselling they would make me feel worse.
DO NOT go here. It is a money making scheme as Pearson as a company is losing an incredible amount of money. The lecturers are lazy, student services are incompetent and there is 0 support what so ever. This is honestly the biggest regret of my life and most of my friends lives and I wish that I was able to read this review three years ago. DO go to that other uni you was looking for, DO that apprenticeship! DO NOT go to Pearson College London! All of these other reviews must be from different unis because they are not the same as my experience lol just ask the people who done the right thing and dropped out and went to better universities
useless. not even a library
miles away. go to lse or ucl
It's been fun and challenging. Definitely a more personal experience than a large university. It is central and easy to get to, definitely feel at the heart of London.
Most of the subjects are quite engaging and involve more practical learning. 12 assignments in your first year...
Unlimited Printing, Coffee, Tea. USB Charging and availability of seminar and lecture content online. All lectures are recorded. Very easy to keep track of coursework.
Holborn, can't get more central in London
Personal Tutor and in class support. They could make meetings with personal tutors mandatory half way through term.
Definitely recommend to anyone who wants real life experiences related to the workplace. Tutors are supportive and patient which really helps nurture your learning.
Constantly informing us of what's out there and creating workshops. Always linking assignments and presentations to the workplace and what your manager would want from you.
Most: we learn from first hand experienced lecturers so they are learning with us, as oppossed to lecturers who have retired from their businesses etc. Least: not enough time to do the assignments (about 2 weeks until submission from the last seminar). Whereas other unis allow another month at least until submission.
Pearson Business School have practical and efficient facilities. They do their best to meet the needs of all students by providing the best facilities thay can, despite being a small institution.
It is situated in the best location, surrounded by a number of fast food restaurants, cafes, and banks which is a great plus when you need a cash point or to visit your bank branch. The station is a five minute straight walk down to the university (no secret corners roads or turns to get into). And covent garden is in walking distance too! A quick stroll with friends after lectures is fun, and gets you in the right frame of mind to work afterwards.
Great support, teachers available almost everyday but will email you when they are not. You can submit them your work anytime for feedback. The two careers officers are fantastic snd really help in making sure cv and cover letters are correct beford submitting for internships etc. Counselling is also available and you can submit a request anytime on your student portal.
I feel very encouraged from all sides at uni which makes learning a lot easier.
We are bieng told what level we need to be and are prepared for it, but difficult to gage in first year
More contact hours if willing to stay. Tutors are encouraging and happy to provide more material Least: short opening times
The computer rooms have great equipment, also free coffee all day
Right in city centre making travelling easy, feels safe
Personal tutors care a lot, tutors try their best to have eveyone at the same level, counsellor is very lovely
Been cool, enjoyed it a lot
A lot of connections to industry
Pretty good methods, balance with lectures vs workshop
Got lots of software and computers though very crashy
Support in lectures are very good but don't receive much feedback for improvement
i have been made to feel very welcome and treated very fairly
lot's of offers and opportunities
Very adaptable/easy to understand
Lot's of professional equipment
Some good facilities near by
Always someone around to help
