L’Oréal partners with Pearson Business School for a second Degree Apprenticeship programme


Earlier this year, L’Oréal, the world’s largest cosmetics company partnered with Pearson Business School to launch their first Degree Apprenticeship programme; due to the success of the campaign they have partnered once again.

This unique opportunity offers students the chance to learn and earn with one of the most recognisable companies in the world.  L’Oréal are present in every segment of the cosmetics industry, they’re growing above the marketplace in every division and they are number one for a reason - they hire the best. This two-year Degree Apprenticeship programme is designed to give student-apprentices the experience of working for a global company, whilst studying for an Honours Degree at the same time.  

A number of bright and ambitious students will be chosen to complete this exciting Degree Apprenticeship and also help contribute to the success of L’Oréal across the Marketing, HR, IT, Visual Merchandising and Supply Chain departments. Based at their London HQ, in Hammersmith, participants will be able to fast track their degrees, by completing a two year BA (Hons) Business Management degree, graduate with Chartered Manager status and build up their network of professional contacts at the same time.

Degree Apprenticeships are a growing and developing part of Higher Education and part of the future at Pearson Business School. The L’Oréal Degree Apprenticeship expands on the hugely successful portfolio delivered by Pearson Business School, including the Rotational Degree Apprenticeship, BBC Degree Apprenticeship, Mondelez Degree Apprenticeship, International Rotational Degree Apprenticeship,  Millwall FC Degree Apprenticeship, Red Carnation Hotel Degree Apprenticeship, Moorfields Degree Apprenticeship and the Pearson Degree Apprenticeship.

Alex Bennett, Senior Emerging Talent Manager, L’Oréal UK said:
“Our people are key to what makes L’Oréal the best in its industry. Introducing a Degree Apprenticeship programme to our Emerging Talent offering will enable us to continue to recruit and develop innovative, proactive, and passionate people, whilst supporting them through their educational goals. Partnering with Pearson College London allows us to adapt our strategy to the changing nature of the higher education market, whilst achieving our diversity and inclusion goals; a key part of L’Oréal’s global commitments.”  

Tuition fees will be paid for by L’Oréal and student-apprentices will be paid at least £18,000 per annum, with time off for study. They’ll also graduate debt-free, as their fees will be covered by L’Oreal.

About Pearson Business School
Education, powered by industry experience.

We're transforming higher education. As a FTSE 100 company, immersed in industry, we do things differently. Industry engagement is at the core of everything that we do, and it’s what sets us apart.

We offer all full-time degree students guaranteed internships*, so they gain experience during their studies. Our degree apprentices also get to work within a company throughout their studies, so they gain valuable experience, learning on the job. We help our students to build their own professional networks; they’re taught by well-connected industry experts, and they get to make contacts at industry workshops led by some of the world’s most reputable organisations.  We work with industry giants from Unilever, L’Oreal, and Sony Pictures, to WPP, Lloyds of London and IBM. Alongside their academic studies, it's experiences like these that help our students to develop the knowledge and skills they’ll need to succeed, as well as inspire them, so they have the drive and ambition to get ahead.

Our students are enterprising and entrepreneurial. They get to work with our in-house business incubator FindOutFresher, and many have set up their own companies too, like Kickpush and Yaantu and even social enterprises like Once Upon a Doug.

Our alumni have gone on to work for brands such as Nestle, Sainsbury’s, Microsoft, Dyson, Not on the High Street, the BBC, Snapchat, Wincanton and General Mills.

Industry engagement drives us; it’s not just what we do, it’s who we are. And it is what will take us, and our students, into the future.
