Pearson College London
Industry engagement is at the core of everything that we do; it’s the key to delivering our vision of empowering the people that will alter the world. Our mission is clear: to become one of the UK’s leading universities for in-depth industry engagement. Our academic schools are united by our mantra “designed, improved, and delivered with industry” and our students graduate feeling prepared for the workplace and ready to embark on a long and fulfilling career. Our students are taught by specialists that have worked in their respective industries and they benefit from industry feedback from leaders within the industry too. They get to deliver on live industry briefs and attend industry workshops and conferences led by some of the world’s most reputable organisations (past events have involved Deloitte, LVMH, Barclays Ventures, Framestore, Blue Zoo and Milk VFX). We work with industry giants from L’Oréal, Tesco, Transport for London and IBM, to Framestore, DNEG, Industrial Light & Magic and PlayStation London Studio, and that’s what sets us apart. When you combine higher education and industry, everyone benefits. Especially when there’s a need for graduates to stand out from the crowd in a competitive market. Industry engagement drives us; it’s not just what we do, it’s who we are. And it is what will take us, and our students, into the future.
OUR MISSION AND VALUES
PEARSON COLLEGE LONDON MISSION STATEMENT
Our mission is to become one of the UK’s leading universities for in-depth industry engagement which helps our students develop the information, intellectual capacity and professional experience they need for their long-term careers. Our courses are designed to be academically demanding, industry informed, and to inspire students with a real interest in how their chosen discipline plays a role in the modern professional world.
PEARSON COLLEGE LONDON VALUES
Student-centred – We put our students first and keep their interests at the center of our thinking. Our goal is to do all we can to give our students every occasion to develop a strong establishment for their future and to include them in the design, delivery, and enhancement of their degrees.
Engaged – We entirely engage with and treat as equally significant the input of students, industry, and academics as we believe they all have a key role to play in the design and delivery and ongoing improvement of programs and the student experience.
Career-Concentrated – A university education undoubtedly cultivates the mind, broadens interest and awareness, and develops critical thinking – but for most students, the ultimate outcome is an establishment for a successful career, and therefore a sophisticated understanding of the professional world is also the main component we embed into the student experience.
Global – These days no place is an island – even when it is. It is significant that students understand the role of the UK and their discipline in an international context and as Pearson is truly global with university and corporate relationships all over the world we are committed to ensuring our students are given the occasion to develop this.
Integrity – A university education is not just about individual careers or the joy of learning, it is also about preparing to play a role as citizens of a complex world. To engage with that world, to help solve problems and forge relationships, to understand other points of view, all requires integrity, creativity, and the skill and willingness to take responsibility and we embed this into our approach at Pearson College London.
