Pearson have opened up doors that have allowes me to gain more and understand where I want to go, in terms of a career path. They have also given me an environment where I have made a great group of friends who are supportive and motivational.
Pearson host multiple industry days that allow students to network with professionals in the business world. This also helps us to gain more experience and knowledge.
My favourite thubg about pearson is that the lecturers are professionals in the fields that they teach. Therefore they are able to give us real world examples. My least favorite thing is that it can be quite difficult to find lecturers around uni amd sometimes responses to emails are delayed.
They are great, the bathrooms are always kept clean and the rooms are spacious and work friendly. They even have a little relaxion area.
Yes the university is in the heart of london and as a result there are plenty of places to eat and socialise.
The support at pearson is good, you can talk to lectures about work and sometimes personal issues. This makes the whole experience at pearson better than I could have imagined. They also have a counsellor who is very helpful and makes talking about certain things more bearable
Overall I love Pearson Business school! Not only are you getting a great education from industry professionals, but you also have a more tightknit community. The experience is like no other and it really does prepare you for the workplace.
All of our coursework and presentations are made to simulate the workplace. We also have a great talent development team who organise industry days with talks and workshops which helps us grow both professionally and personally. our Internships team help us find work placements and also help ut with CV and interview tips.
I like having industry speakers from large and small companies like Microsoft coming in to give us information for our coursework. I would like us to have a larger physical library or at least have access to one of the larger universities libraries which are in the area.
We have 2 large lecture rooms which can be made into smaller classes with dividers. Each of our floors has a kitchen which has free tea and coffee! All classrooms and meeting rooms can be booked for studies or meetings. Each floor has a printer which doesn't cost us anything, In addition, we have a large online library as well as a physical library which has subscriptions to magazines and newspapers like The Economist or The Times.
The building is situated in the centre of High Holborn. We have numerous restaurant chains and cafes around us like Wasabi, Leon, etc. We are also a short walk from Covent Garden and Tottenham Court road. The building is also a 2min walk from Holborn station as well as a 5min walk from Covent Garden Station and a 10min walk from Tottenham Court Road Station.
The tutors are always up for a chat and they always have good extra reading resources. Our personal support is very good, we have a counsellor to talk to if we are having problems and we also have a really great student association who plan really cool events as well as a great student experience team who plan cool talks and events. Moreover, we have dedicated teams who plan and organise professional industry days with great speakers as well as a great internships team who help with interview prep and finding interview opportunities.
I am in my final year, and I can safely say that joining pearson has been the biggest regret of my life. Not to mention the cost of the mistake. I do not recommend you join this university, I wish someone had been honest with me before I joined and told me the truth of this place. If anyone is offered a bursary to join, everyone gets it, its just a marketing scheme used to ploy more students in with lower tuition fees but also receive less value for a lower cost of being there.
No. They claim to do these things, and have 'big company connections', but the sad truth is that the only industry connections they have are low-budget start ups who want to take on students for free labour and not pay them anything, that is how the 'guaranteed internship works', which by the way, is not guaranteed at all.
I don't like anything about the way the courses are taught - although there are few good lecturers. Many of the lecturers do not care and are under-qualified. The student services are unorganised and are just a joke. I have had far too many issues while studying at this university to ever give it a good name.
No Library facility, often loud environments, it is often dirty, all crammed into two floors (for business students) which is disappointing.
It is in a good location - close to holborn station so in the middle of London. Obviously not close to any accommodation.
There is little to no support, unless you force it out of them, still you will receive minimal support.
So far so good, enjoy the teachers past experiences and that they bring to learning
Skill sessions and tailored CV reviews
The degree apprenticeship opportunity has meant I have worked at Tesco, IBM and Pearson College alongside studying for my degree. This work experience has made me more employable, given me practical experience, confidence and a greater knowledge of the corporate world
PCL is constantly working with employers to run mentoring, industry days etc. and my degree apprenticeship has meant I now have 3 years work experience
Lecturers are all masters level and are all working in the field/have done previously - bring experience and current knowledge to the role
Lack of library, when it is busy it is really loud - there are no quiet places to go
Loads to do in London however due to high work commitments of a degree apprenticeship, I don't make use of it
So so so much support - cannot fault this on bit. Always there for a chat/to support me through more serious issues, personally and academically
Good experience so far, have been learning a lot since the start of second year. First year felt like a waste of time and money
I think our uni could help us out more by sending us emails about internship possibilities and job openings in the industry
Pros: Courses are recorded, resourceful staff/ tutors, talented students Cons: Curriculum not very well structured for students who are new to different software
Very clean and well kept
London is lovely, lively city full of international people, making it very diverse
Our student support is quite poor, the staff
Don't like that the lectures are held a week before the seminar. Please change back to same week
Need more areas to study. Both floors are too overcrowded, nit enough space to work here
Industry days/great help from tutors/help with internships and work experience is good
Practical exercises/transferable skills. But don't like that lectures are a week before seminars
Could have more books available in study area/sometimes cab get overcrowded to work
