About our workshop

The Professional Workshop is based on the principles 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:

  • 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!
  • get to know some of your future tutors and classmates
  • get the chance to insure your offer (see more below)

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.

Insuring your offer

We recognise the importance of exams, but we also know what a stressful time it can be. Even with all of the revision and studying in the world, things don’t always go to plan. This another reason why we encourage offer holders to attend a Professional Workshop.

By attending the Professional Workshop, it gives us another way to assess your suitability for our degrees. If you do not meet your predicted grades, you could still get onto the programme based on passing the Workshop.

We understand the pressure on students to achieve high predicted grades - passing the Professional Workshop helps provide assurance to both you as a student and to the College, that the course is right for you. 

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, evenings and on weekends. If you're not available on the date we invite you to just let us know - we're happy to work with you to reschedule your workshop where possible.
