Pearson Business School is launching a range of new bursaries starting with some exciting international study placements. We strongly believe in facilitating international cultural experiences at Pearson College London and there is no better way to stand out to future employers than gaining some international experience early on during your degree programme.

There are 10 places available for a 3 week international study placement, including industry visits. Students can choose to study in either Brazil or Italy to gain international experience to add to their CVs.

This programme, run through one of our international partner organisations International Business School of the Americas, will be subsidised by Pearson College London and will consist of:

  • A 3 week study trip to Brazil or Italy in July 2020 (at the end of the first year)
  • Pearson College London will pay for return flights, hotel accommodation and for the programme itself at a university in either Sao Paulo, Brazil or Alta Villa Vincenta in Italy
  • Students will take part in classes, activities and industry visits in the country they visit
  • Everything will be planned so students can make the most of the trip; learn new skills, be taught by expert tutors, gain international experience, understand a new culture, have fun with your classmates and have an incredible experience.
    Successful applicants will be selected over a two-stage process:

Stage 1: Attend a Professional Workshop in London by 1st May 2019. Successfully completing this first stage also means students will be able to attend the Discovery Day and be considered for one of the 10 places available. By passing a Professional Workshop, students will also be awarded a partial fee waiver - saving thousands of pounds on the cost of your degree at Pearson College London.

Final stage for applicants: Discovery Day in London in early July 2019. If students pass stage 1 they will be invited to the final stage of the process to take part in a one day project to help solve a real international business issue that Pearson plc face.
