Pearson College London is proud to announce that we have been accepted onto the Office for Students (OfS) new Register of Higher Education Providers. The OfS is the independent regulator of higher education institutions in England and being listed as a registered provider enables undergraduate students within Pearson Business School and Escape Studios to take out government-backed tuition fee loans.
To register with the OfS, Higher Education Institutions have to demonstrate that they meet challenging requirements including course quality, academic standards, financial sustainability, management and governance and more. Once registered, providers must continue to meet all requirements and will be subject to OfS regulatory scrutiny; the level of ongoing regulation ensures that prospective students can be confident they’re making a choice to study at an institution that has met high quality thresholds and strives for continuous improvement.
Pearson College London’s application for registration complies with all the requirements and initial conditions of OfS registration and therefore no specific on-going conditions have been attached to the registration.
As part of the registration process, Pearson College London also submitted an Access and Participation Plan; the plan was approved by the Office for Students and sets out how the institution will improve the equality of opportunity for students from disadvantaged backgrounds and under-represented groups.
Roxanne Stockwell, Principal, Pearson College London said:
“This fantastic news reflects an enormous amount of work by the whole team; the OfS’s recognition of the quality and value of our programmes and academic standards is evidence of our continued and strengthening commitment to excellence, for the benefit of our students.”

Notes for editors:
We're a boutique institution offering a range of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, degree apprenticeships and short courses. Part of Pearson, a FTSE 100 company, we pride ourselves on offering a unique, supportive and close-knit environment, where everyone can succeed.
Industry engagement is at the core of everything that we do; it’s the key to delivering our vision of empowering the people that will change the world.
Our mission is clear: to become one of the UK's leading universities for in-depth industry engagement. Our academic schools are united by our mantra "designed, developed and delivered by industry" and we ensure our students graduate industry ready, as their career starts from day one.
Our students are taught by experts that have all worked in their respective industries and they’re mentored by leaders within industry too. They get to deliver on live industry briefs and attend industry workshops led by some of the world's most reputable organisations. We work with industry giants from Unilever, L’Oreal, WPP and IBM, to Framestore, Double Negative, MPC and The Mill, and that's what sets us apart.
When you combine higher education and industry, everyone benefits. Especially when there's a need for graduates to stand out from the crowd in a competitive market.
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.
