I really enjoy studying at Pearson. All of the tutors are friendly and very well educated and teach well. I can't fault my time at Pearson so far and I hope this experience continues to be great.
We have a talent development centre where many opportunities and networking events are offered to us. Also, in our second year we are given a guaranteed internship which is great for work experience and future careers
I like the fact that the tutors have had careers in business and are not just teachers as they are able to provide insight into their experiences in business which is helpful.
There are quiet areas to do work which are spacious and easy to concentrate in. There is also the kitchen area and collaborative spaces where people can work as a group so there is the option to do either.
I have always lived in London and I still live at home and I love London. Sometimes it is a bit stressful when I have to get the train during rush hour but other than that I enjoy it.
We have a personal tutor we can speak to if we have any troubles and we can also go to student services who will help with any issues or concerns that we have which is great.
Very much enjoyed my time at pearson college London! Been a life changing experience and there’s nothing I would change!! The teaching has been amazing along with the exposure to large business, allowing you to really grow your cv
Hosting industry events at large FTSE business’s. Offering guaranteed internships and help to find them! Having teams of people to help with CV’s/ applications. All the lectures are the best at what they do. And have real life experiences
There practical, all our lectures use real life examples to teach which they have undertaken in previous roles
In central London. Clean modern and space for work! Free coffee machines
Love it. Living in London is such a buzz and motivates you to want to work harder.
Amazing. All the lectures are willing to help with any matter personal or academic. And go above and beyond for you
It has been warm and welcoming so far, although as a degree apprentice I haven't been able to get a true feel of 'uni life'. The sports clubs and societies available to traditional students however, looks amazing
- Industry days - 'An evening with...' - Guaranteed internships - Degree apprenticeships - In-campus business start up company - industry based tutors
What I like most: - tutor availability an help (always reply to emails) - quick return on feedback - recorded lectures What I like least: - when the courses are taught (could be taught in a better order e.g. don't have a seminar about how to structure a report a week before it's due)
Excellent, we have: - free tea and coffee - lots of private rooms and space to study in However, we could have: - a more user-friendly online library
As I'm a degree apprentice and travel over an hour and a half to Pearson College, I don't get much of an experience of the nightlife. However during the day, the city life is goood
Okay - tutors could be more open to having feedback submitted (submit any time, not just one month before, and not restricted to 500 words)
Massive learning curve! It’s been a huge and sometimes difficult adjustment but uni itself is so good, it’s a brilliant opportunity. It’s going so quickly and I can’t wait to see what else it brings my way
Partners with industry leaders, invites representatives in to work with students. Promotes work experience and internship opportunities. Regular events with professional speakers to expand insight and industry knowledge. Offers coaching eg. Building your CV
Interactive, self-led, always plenty of enthusiasm, innovative with a strong focus on the future and how to prepare, not past/outdated theories
Great, very sleek, modern, clean and inviting. A good use of space with a variety of areas to work and socialise in
Crazy! Fast paced but ultra convinient
Feedback isn’t as good as expected, but maybe that’s just uni. Outside of class support is fantastic, student services are so helpful and do their very best to get you what you want and need
Coming from a non-academic background having completed a 2 year apprenticeship qualification, I never saw myself particularly enjoying university. Indeed, I am sure this would not be the case if I were studying anywhere else but Pearson College. The blend of academic work and professional development in an engaging and exciting environment makes it an incredibly rewarding experience.
Pearson provides a bespoke and unparalleled university experience by combining traditional academia with professional development. Alongside supporting our coursework and exam endeavours through engaging and exciting lectures and seminars, they encourage and enable us to enhance our professional profiles by hosting industry days, networking events, talks with business leaders, and business workshops, not to mention the guaranteed internship program. The connections Pearson College has within the professional sphere, and being ideally located in London makes it an absolutely unmissable experience. I feel like I am being treated like an adult and a professional in all ventures I engage with, and am encouraged to bolster my strengths while identifying and working on my weaknesses. While simply having a degree will allow me to get a foot in the door with most employers, I genuinely believe that the incredible skillset that Pearson fosters and has allowed me develop already will give me a clear advantage over my peers.
Our course is delivered by the team of full time and freelance tutors and lecturers. All specialists with years of real world business, finance and law experience, I am assured that the teaching I am getting is cutting edge and genuinely applicable. In addition to the combination of great tuition and professional development, the range of societies as well as the active and exciting student experience team are fantastic at organising fun student events as well as an unforgettable freshers week experience.
The Pearson building itself, is an active yet comfortable environment to work and study in. With break rooms and study areas as well as collaborative areas and meeting rooms accessible to students on all floors, it is a pleasure to come to each day. This being said, the range of tech Pearson brings to the table means that if we aren't able to make it to lectures, we are able to watch them online via livestream recording at our own convinience. In addition, the Pearson online library gives us access to tens of thousands of fascinating textbooks, journals and articles at the click of a button.
I genuinely believe there is no better place to study Business than London. With hundreds of start ups rising and falling by the day, as well as the HQ's of many huge organisations, it presents a fantastic opportunity to immerse yourself in the business world. The nightlife is fantastic and there is always something new and exciting to do!
Not only are lecturers and seminar leaders always at hand online and in person to discuss how work is going in an open and constructive manner, but our personal tutors are fantastic at providing both personal, professional and academic assistance and feedback when required.
Very good, everyone is friendly it’s like everyone is in one big friend group, there are so many like minded people that go to the uni because they’re all looking to succeed in the business world which is really motivating to be around. The work is challenging but very rewarding
Our uni is based around learning in an office style atmosphere, we have a close relationship with tutors and all assignments are designed to be written as business papers. We have the opportunity to go on industry days with people from big companies, there are so many events organised to help with networking. There is a placement scheme also
I like how interactive it is, how the lectures are small so you can ask questions and how the seminars are based on the content from the lecture
London is the best place to be when studying for a business degree, the opportunities are endless!
I am working full time as well going to university, so I am very stressed most of the time. However, the uni are very good at accommodating this. They offer help and support and assist you when needs be. I look forward to going to uni on the Fridays as I get to see my friends and learn something new besides office work. The uni is lovely to be in, the decor is modern and comfortable. I feel very at ease going into the uni. Overall, although uni work does seem impossible at times, help is always available and I always manage it in the end.
Every week we receive a newsletter with news of industry events going on. There have been networking masterclasses, talks with big CEOs such as Levi Roots and coming up, there is a LinkedIn masterclass which will be really useful. One of my friends has recently looked to change jobs and so has been in touch with the careers department, who have helped her to improve her cv and to help find out where she can look for future jobs.
I like the way that our lectures are posted onto our virtual learning environment, so we can go over things we are struggling with. I also like how we are asked to do activities in order to demonstrate our new knowledge and skills. I only attend seminars on Fridays so they can go on for quite a while, which can get draining. However, we are always given about 3 breaks throughout the whole day which is really nice as you’re able to refresh, reboot and catch up with your friends.
The Kitchen is very nice and modern. Plenty of plug sockets, teas, coffees provided which is nice. There’s also a nice little cafe which provides meals and snacks. Our library is online, which I can only seem to access on a computer which is annoying. But it has a lot more books than most physical libraries have so it is really good.
The city life around my uni is my favourite thing about it. It is located right in the centre of London which I absolutely love. There are loads of places to eat and shop and so many transport links to get you out and about. There are clubs everywhere almost every day of the week so that you can let loose and have fun. The uni are good at letting us know how to make full use of the city and it really does benefit us.
My lecturers are very good at offering feedback promptly and also do a good job at responding to emails. If I have ever had an issue or question, they have always been quick to help and provide advice. There are also teachers available who are so helpful in teaching us valuable skills. For example, one week he taught us the ins and outs of referencing which has been so helpful with my deadlines coming up. My tutor is good at accommodating depending on my schedule and is very good at working around me which I like.
The uni is brilliant if you want real life work experience and a degree, it is not suited to people looking for the typical uni lifestyle. It accelerates career prospects more than a normal degree.
Offers degree apprenticeships whereby you work in a large company 4 days a week and attend uni once a week.
They are taught be business men and women who actually know the industry, rather than people who have only studied business.
We are only there one day a week so we don’t use all of them, but kitchens on every floor and areas to study.
In London so great, but again not everyone lives near uni.
Academically I think the support is good. We get assigned a personal tutor we could ask for any extra help from.
I have been extremely pleased with my experience so far, and I believe this feeling will only strengthen as more time goes by. Thew tutors really care, and are always seeking out new and engaging ways for students to get real life experiences of business, highly encouraging us not to miss out on any opportunities.
Pearson Business School are incredibly active in ensuring we have the best opportunity for employability. A key way of doing this is through events called: Industry Engagement Days, where representatives from; 'Direct Line', 'Oracle', 'Vodafone', 'Microsoft', have given speeches and been present on panels, as well as setting us real-life tasks, which has tested an array of skills including; teamwork, creativity, critical thinking, public speaking. These days have huge benefits for students. Below are some blogs further detailing how purposeful these events are: - www.blog.pearsoncollegelondon.ac.uk/2018/11/01/industry-engagement-the-future-of-retail-what-is-the-role-of-the-high-street/ - www.blog.pearsoncollegelondon.ac.uk/2018/11/09/industry-engagement-2/ In addition, Pearson Business School work closely with many companies which make it very easy to gain internships, work experience and opportunities to ask questions to people in all aspects of business. They also provide a £1000 grant for internships abroad, giving many students the chance to travel to China, Vietnam and Europe to develop their learning with real-life experience.
Everything is taught with a focus on real-life practical knowledge, and is often emphasized by talks from corporations such as 'The Energy Project', to further understand the meaning of the topics
There are always meeting rooms available for 1-2-1 discussions, as well as for societies and interview rehearsals, mirroring real-life working environments
London is amazing for any business student. Every single day there are events that gives students the opportunities to network and explore more about their course outside of Uni. In recent weeks I have attended events hosted by Google, Facebook, Snapchat, Barclays. I completely understand and am thankful that I chose London as a residing place
Tutors are always open to feedback both in person and through email. Their responses are effective and efficient. As Pearson Business School continues to grow, the level of support is growing substantially. 1-2-1 discussions, student services, and the Pearson app are extremely helpful. The running of the school's student union, and more critically the Academic and School Board is very good, allowing students to take an active role in the running of the Uni
Good and improving each year with events and opportunities for networking and improving skills for the workplace. As the student body grows, the more societies there are.
There are lots of career talks, networking events and industry events which help to connect students to indsutry. A lot of students are also on apprenticeships schemes allowing them to apply theory to reality.
Structured and diverse skills and content.
Very good, but no physical library to work in
Brilliant there is always something going on in London.
Small class sizes means that theres lots of opportunity for one on one support
