Go global with Pearson Business School

Subsidised study placements in Brazil or Italy as part of your degree

If you’re starting your business/law/accounting degree with us in September 2019 then we have an exciting opportunity for you. We’ll be taking 10 students on three-week study trips to Brazil or Italy. We strongly believe in facilitating international experiences at Pearson Business School and there is no better way to stand out to future employers than gaining some international experience.

You’ll be able to choose a study trip in either Brazil or Italy to gain experience that you can add to your CV for internships and graduate schemes. This programme, run through one of our international partner organisations International Business School of the Americas, will be partially subsidised by Pearson College London and will consist of:

  • A 3 week study trip to Brazil or Italy in July 2020 (at the end of your first year)
  • Pearson College London will pay for return flights, hotel accommodation and for the programme itself at a university in either Sao Paulo, Brazil or Alta Villa Vincenta in Italy
  • Students will take part in classes, activities and industry visits in the country they visit
  • Everything will be planned so you can make the most of the trip; learn new skills, be taught by expert tutors, gain international experience, understand a new culture, have fun with your classmates and have an incredible experience.

To apply for an international placement you must be holding an offer to study at Pearson Business School in September 2019 and have completed our Professional Workshop. New students can still make an application through UCAS for September 2019 but places are limited.
