I have really enjoyed it, it’s a uni inside a business so it’s not like the traditional boring uni, it’s fun and fast paced. With an unusual style of learning which suits me
Industry days that make us learn about different sectors in business. Working with CEO’s and companies on a variety of projects. Learning by doing not by just reading
I like how you learn it and then get told you’re working on this project for this business, show us how you’ve learnt this aspect of the course
Very good, they pay for our London student union so have access to all that. It’s a uni inside a business so we have access to pretty much anything we want
High pace; but well worth the money. Always something happening
There is a counsellor available. Also there is personal tutors who you can emial about anything and will reply and help you within an hour or two
I have enjoyed working with my peers and some of the course, i think it has lost its personal and industry style touch though greatky due to how many people they have accepted.
It hold industry days where we have panels of industry professionals coming in a couple times a term
Hmm I like that they lectures are recorded so can watch at home at any given time. The seminar need to be more interactive and less lecture style
Good. The uni is very small although and its very hard to find a quiet place to work as it is always packed
Location is the best thing about the university, minute from Holborn St,
I think they have lost the tailored approach because of the amount of students let in, nevertheless some great staff that will go the extra mile.
I would advise people to opt for the degree apprenticeship route as it is a fantastic way to combine work and study and apply the knowledge from the classroom to the workplace and vice versa
I am a degree apprentice so I have the opportunity for three years of work experience. Uni are very facilitating and cater 50% of the degree to the job role so that it is more manageable and relative.
I like that all of the tutors are experts in their field so you get a wide range of industry examples within the lectures and seminars. Sometimes I find that the tutors should watch the lecture that their colleague has done before the seminar so that the content is not repeated.
very good it is in london
i have four mentors including an academic skills mentor and personal tutor
Overall, it is a good university for being a new born one. Some aspects should be improve. I would implement the feedback and tutors presence throughout the terms
Through Industry insight, Talent Development App, Email Newsletter, Workshops, Seminars
The course is very well structured divided in Lectures, Seminars, Workshops and Conferences. I love the most the practical approach to each topi eg: Marshmellow challenge to explain the concept of team work, Diversity and Inclusion
Well-organised facilities. The main building gives access to the first two floors to students. You can find cafeteria, student service area, IT area, classrooms all around, and free cafe area/ kitchen to store your own food.
The pace of living in London is astonishingly fast. High- quality of living, facilities well-connected in each borough eg parks, museum, libraries, public transports work well, parks, museum, libraries
The support in academic environment is fair. I have not experienced any personal support yet
The uni seems good so far, it's small and has most of the things I need, however the student portal could use some work as well as the overall facilities like the wifi and the lack of a library.
They often advertise industry days and workshops to us, and there are special events for networking, meeting working alumni and volunteering opportunities for us.
I like that this uni takes place in an actual company and that they are incredibly dedicated to improving your chances of employment via internships and industry opportunities. I don't like the obsessive office culture at PBS. And I feel that although it's improving, there aren't really enough societies at this uni.
They're ok. But I think there should be computers for Business students and there isn't really a proper library, most of our library books are online and they are quite annoying to access. Also the wifi needs improvement.
London's pretty nice, but so pricey.
I think that although Pearson College is a fairly new University, they genuinely are trying their best to provide support and provide as many opportunities as possible
My overall experience at university so far has been pretty stressful and I would say that I am struggling to get used to life at university, I knew it would be hard work before I came. However, I have yet to adjust to university life and the work load I am meant to be performing.
They have said that we will get a guaranteed internship if we want it. There are lots of industry days where we are able to network with people that are working in industries. We have already learnt about personal branding and how its important to make yourself look professional and presentable on social media platforms and in person.
I like that all the course information such as lectures and seminars are all recorded so we can watch them again at a later date and that all the coursework study materials can be found online. However, my least favourite thing is that we have not been told how we should write our assessments, for example how to structure them.
The interior of the university is well thought out and modern, there is lots of study places with the campus. They provide free hot drinks which I think many people enjoy. However, the WIFI is not very good and most people I know at the university has had trouble with connecting to it.
Very hard to get used to, it can be very busy the majority of the time and it takes such a long time to travel between places.
I have yet received any relevant feedback on any work that I have done from my tutors. I have also not been to anyone about counselling, I would not know who to go it if I did want it.
I've really enjoyed it and I'm so happy I chose to attend Pearson College London, it is definitely the right place for me. The focus on industry and employability is really great and I know that when I graduate I will leave with a relevant degree that will help me in my career.
I am studying Business Management as part of a Degree Apprenticeship, so I gain 3 years work experience (Monday - Thursday) in Marketing along side studying for my degree (Friday). This has significantly increased my employability as I'm applying the knowledge I learn in the classroom into my role, helping me to further progress in my career. In addition to my work placement, Pearson College London organise many sessions on employability for students from the basics of Linkedin, professional skills, CV writing and interview skills, all the way to sessions with employers themselves including Royal Mail and Unilever. This has given myself and my peers exposure to large companies and expanded our professional network.
I love that our lectures are taught by industry professionals so we learn the theory with real world examples from experienced professionals from different sectors. This helps me understand what I am learning much better and understand how it applys in the workplace. This has helped me improve my career in Marketing as I can use what I learn in the classroom each Friday in my work placement (Monday - Thursday). I think the seminar structure could be improved because it would be great to change the groups regularly so we can interact with different students to share new perspectives.
The building is newly refurbished so all the facilities are modern, making the campus asthetically pleasing. It is a relaxed environment with an Open Door policy which has especially helped me in the lead up to assessment weeks. There is free coffee and printing on site which really helps and takes an added stress away, with microwaves available for use imbetween lectures and seminars. The library is online which help make the reading more accessible as I can access it from home, but there are copies of textbooks on site if you prefer that also.
I love it. We're based in central London so there's lots to get involved with. Last year there was a Christmas party organised at a top night club which was great and also a winter ball in a luxury hotel - two great events in only two months. The student experience team did a fantastic job.
There is a feedback policy with coursework which really helps you check that you're on track and understand the task. Tutors are always willing to help you when you ask for extra 1-2-1 time on a module. Student services offer a range of support for learning difficulties and mental health issues.
My overall university experience has been second to none. I feel part of a family at Pearson Business School. The support I have received has been great and the teaching is excellent.
Degree Apprenticeships, guarenteed internships, Constantly holds industry events where big brands such as unilever come to speak, brings in mentors from other external organisations, Tutors all have real world experience in their chosen field.

Fantastic - Everything is modern. We have free tea, coffee, hot chocolate, good kitchen facilities. Free access to our text books.
The city life is amazing. We are based in the heart of London in close proximity to pubs, clubs restaurants and bars.
The feedback is great. We get the opportunity to submit coursework drafts for feedback. We also have an assigned personal tutor which we regularly catch up with regularly and can go to with any issues or support.
Fun, informative and a close community feel
Offers Degree Apprenticeships allowing 3 years of full time work whilst studying for the degree
The course is always linked back to the industry and therefore you can easily relate skills from the classroom to the office
Great for being able to socialise and have everything you need in close proximity
Personal tutors and in house counsellors give extra support wherever it is needed
brilliant, everyone is so nice and helpful and i would recommend to any prospectus students to attend here!
By offering Industry days, work placements and all kinds of transferable skills. As well as working in a ftse 100 company.
Always Informative but teach real skills, not from text books written hundreds of years ago.
10/10, partnered with Uni of London therefore we have access to their facilities.
Full of diversity and something for everyone! Whether you prefer days to nights or museums to nightclubs there is a broad range of activities
Fantastic, they offer tutor feedback before work is submitted as well as personal counselling and support from student services.
