Pearson Professional Bursary

If you’re joining Pearson Business School in September 2019, we’re looking for a team of students to act as Industry Engagement Ambassadors. If selected you’ll receive a Pearson Professional Bursary of up to £3,000*.

How to apply

Book a phone interview

On the call you will need to be prepared to speak about one of the following topics for 15 minutes (you choose);

  • What company do you dream of working for and why? 
  • Do you have a business/start-up idea? We’d love to hear more about it. 
  • Do you think Artificial Intelligence (AI) will change the way people work in future?

Interviews will be conducted by myself (Lisa Giles - Director for The Centre of Industry Engagement) and Will Holt (Dean of Pearson Business School) so it's also a great opportunity to chat to us and find out more about studying at Pearson College London.

Who is eligible?

The bursary is open to all Pearson Business School offer holders (2019). Everyone who completes an interview will be considered for the Pearson Professional Bursary (up to £3,000). See Terms and conditions below.*

What does being an Industry Engagement Ambassador involve?

If selected you’ll work with our Talent Development Team to create ideas and plan events. At Pearson Business School we offer our students industry events, talent development workshops, professional speakers and careers coaching. We want students to input into the schedule so you’ll be able to have a say and get involved with the organisation of activities. There are no set hours/time scales for the Ambassador roles but we would like you to be engaged throughout your time at university. You might help promote an industry event, be involved in sourcing industry speakers or you could share your ideas in feedback sessions. We’re looking for a wide range of students to join as Ambassadors, a full briefing will be given before you start and training will be provided if needed. It’s a great way to shape life at the College, network with staff, students and employers and build your CV.
