Studying at Pearson Business School

You may have noticed that we’re a little different from traditional universities.

All of our students get access to industry from day one and as well as learning academically, they continue to get CV, LinkedIn and interview tips (to name just a few benefits) throughout their studies to ensure they're employer-ready when they graduate. This might be part of the reason why the average median salary for our Business and Administration graduates is £25,000* - with graduates working in a diverse range of roles.

Congratulations on your excellent perfomance during the Degree Apprenticeship application process.

Although you weren't successful for the Degree Apprenticeship, our tutors monitored your perfomance during the application process and think you're a perfect fit for our programmes - which is why we're delighted to present you with two different options.
