Professional Workshops

The Professional Workshop is based on the principals of a Graduate Scheme Assessment Day. The day is held inside Pearson PLC, one of the largest education companies in the world. This is a fun opportunity to find out more about us and gain real experience of life inside a FTSE 100 company.

The Professional Workshop is a three-hour introductory session that allows you to experience our unique learning environment. Pearson Business School is powered by industry and our students work closely with a range of companies and industry professionals. The workshop is designed to give you a taste of what studying here is like. It's also your opportunity to show us what you're made of.

Successfully completing a Professional Workshop will allow you to:

  • be granted a partial tuition fee waiver so you save money on your university fees
  • automatically be considered for one of our scholarships
  • gain valuable experience of completing a graduate scheme assessment day - something that will come in very handy in a few years' time!
  • meet other potential students on your course
  • get to know your tutors.

If you have applied via our assessment-based entry route, your performance at the Workshop will determine whether we can offer you a place on our programmes.

What to expect on the day?

The day comprises a mixture of group work and individual tasks, all based on graduate scheme assessment centres. It'll give you a real taste of life at Pearson Business School as you'll get to meet some of current students and tutors.

Professional Workshops usually take place on weekday afternoons and on weekends. If you're not available on the date we invite you to just let us know - we're happy to reschedule for a time or day that works better for you.
