Escape Studios Creative Pathways - Key Stage 5

Pearson College London is a higher education provider which offers a range of courses within Business Management and the creative industries (Animation, Visual Effects and Game Art). We are split into two schools, Pearson Business School (PBS) and Escape Studios. Our degree awards are validated by the University of Kent, but we’re the only HE provider based within a FTSE 100 company.

Courses at Escape Studios are taught by industry professionals who have worked for large studios and high budget big screen films, including the Harry Potter series, Star Wars and Disney movies such as the Lion King. Our courses are also designed in consultation with leading industry professionals, such as PlayStation and DNEG, who also take part in assessing and mentoring students.

Our students have moved on successfully to work on a host of popular movies, created their own award-winning shorts, as well as working for large companies like PlayStation – so we’re confident that the skills we give students will equip them for future success.

What we're offering

We are offering 6 sessions designed to talk students interested in creative subjects, such as animation, VFX or GameArt, through university application processes, different styles of degrees and interview skills and creating portfolios.

These sessions will include:

  • Virtual 'Studio Visits' and 'Industry Days', designed to give you the behind the scenes of how studios work, who works in them, the journey of our creatives and live storyboarding opportunities.
  • One on one mock interviews in our last session, where each student will receive personalised feedback.
  • All of our sessions this year will be held live online but will be accessible to students who have access to a computer/laptop and a stable internet connection.
