Pearson College London in the top 10% for UK graduate recruitment for the second year running

For a second successive year, a national graduate survey reveals that Pearson College London is one of the top 20 UK institutions in the UK (well within the top 10%) for its graduates of full-time degree programmes entering full-time employment, compared with former full-time students of other institutions.

The latest Graduate Outcomes survey, from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA), asked graduates what they were doing approximately 15 months after finishing their studies. Of those respondents graduating from Pearson College London in 2018/19:  

  • 93% were in work or further study (national average is 89%) 
  • 91% were in employment or unpaid work (national average is 80%) 
  • 65% were in full-time employment (national average is 56%)  

When surveyed on the classification of occupation, approximately 84%* of respondents were already in highly skilled employment (national average is 77%).

Dr Roxanne Stockwell, Principal of Pearson College London, said: “We’re thrilled to see that for the fourth year in a row our graduate employment outcomes are outstanding. Our mission is all about creating a student experience that blends academic study with direct engagement with employers. Our students continue to leave Pearson College London prepared for the workplace and ready to embark on a long and fulfilling career.

“I’m so proud of everyone at the College, students, staff and our employer partners. This last year has been extremely challenging, but even so our aspiring and determined graduates have continued to secure wonderful roles at a range of companies.”
