About Pearson College London

Education, powered by industry experience.

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 benefit from industry feedback from 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.
