Degree validation 

We work alongside a number of highly respected universities to validate our degrees. Best of all, we choose to partner with institutions that have particular strengths, to make sure you graduate with a great degree that’s valuable and relevant to you and employers, now and in the future. Our university partners have degree-awarding powers that are recognised by the UK authorities. Degree validation means that they judge your degree to be of an appropriate quality and standard to qualify for an award from their institution. The validating university name will be printed on your degree certificate, along with Pearson College London. 

How we work with our industry partners

Everything we do is designed and delivered in collaboration with our industry partners as well as leading academics from the world’s top universities. 

“The students we met from Pearson College London at the Savills event were very engaged and impressive. As a group of prospective young professionals they represented themselves exceptionally well and we look forward to developing a relationship with the College to keep a close eye on this talent!” 

Ema Saunders, People Development Director, Savills 

We work closely with everyone from global businesses to innovative start-ups because we want to give our students up-to-the-minute, inspirational knowledge and experience, whatever type of work they’re passionate about. 

Our industry partners take a lead role in all our degrees and short courses from helping to design and deliver them, to taking on our students as interns. You can also work with us to design a short course for your employees, or offer our programmes to them as part of their personal and professional development.

We’re the first FTSE 100 company to deliver degrees in the UK and as home to Penguin and the FT we can offer you and your employees something truly unique. After all, we’re a successful business ourselves and one of the world’s leading education companies.
