Our mission is clear: to become the UK’s leading university for in-depth industry engagement.

Industry engagement is at the core of everything that we do and we’re always keen to hear from businesses, studios, charities, startups and professionals who are willing to work with us to develop the next generation of talent. 

We already work with an impressive list of industry partners and if you or your organisation would like to find out more about our industry engagement opportunities please complete the form below.

Here are some examples of the exciting projects you could be involved in:

  • Workplace visits - we aim to give our students a flavour of future workplaces and we arrange for groups of students to visit the offices and studios of London based companies. This can be a simple site visit or we can work with you to develop a workshop that can be held on your premises.
  • Industry projects - we pride ourselves on offering a real world education and our Pearson Business School and Escape Studios students undertake industry set projects. This can be a great way to generate new ideas and creative work for your organisation.
  • Mentoring - all of our full time Escape Studios short courses are mentored by an industry professional. If you work in VFX, compositing, animation, games and could spare a few hours of your time to attend a class to provide feedback and industry insight - we’d love to hear from you.
  • Speaking opportunities - we welcome everyone from CEOs, to sector specialists to entrepreneurs to come and inspire our students. This can be in the form of a formal presentation or by taking part in one of our industry events such as The Careers Festival and The VFX Festival.

Having the opportunity to share with up and coming leaders in business has been a real privilege for us. What we’ve been able to do this afternoon is hopefully plant a seed in the minds of future leaders being developed by Pearson College London, to think very differently about how business will be run, and how business will be contributing to the challenges and opportunities the world faces.
