Pearson College London’s undergraduate programmes relocate to London’s MidTown district

Pearson Business School and Escape Studios, both schools within Pearson College London, are moving all undergraduate courses to a state-of-the-art new campus in the heart of London’s MidTown district.

The new campus will provide flexible spaces for students to study, collaborate and innovate. Students within Pearson Business School will be focusing on new projects with leading businesses and start-ups, whilst students within Escape Studios will be collaborating as a team, working in a studio environment, using the latest professional software and tools. Pearson Business School will also be home to an EdTech company, as a new Business Incubator programme will launch towards the latter part of 2016.

The bright and spacious working areas will provide opportunities for students to network with their peers.  Through Pearson College London’s links with industry, they’ll also have the opportunity to attend industry events, giving them the chance to mix with employees from the companies and studios they aspire to work for upon graduation.

Its location on High Holborn, a stone’s throw away from Covent Garden and London’s theatre land, is at the heart of London’s creative scene; London’s MidTown district is also home to some of the world’s brightest business names as well as a number of innovative start-ups, and fast-growing SMEs, making it the perfect home for Pearson Business School and Escape Studios.

Pearson College London is the first higher education institution founded by a FTSE 100 company. Pearson College London is part of Pearson UK, the world’s learning company. Undergraduate courses taught at MidTown are offered in the following disciplines: Business, Law, Accounting, VFX, Games and Animation. Pearson College London also delivers a range of postgraduate and short courses within the Escape Studios West facilities at Shepherds Bush.

Courses are designed and delivered in partnership with major employers and start-ups meaning that students receive the skills needed to succeed in the world of work.

Pearson Business School has also recently launched an innovative Rotational Degree Apprenticeship in partnership with major employers such as WPP’s Ogilvy, Unilever, Tesco, Direct Line Group, IBM and Pearson that allows people to study for a degree in combination with on-the-job training meaning that students graduate job ready.
