So, you’ve booked your place at a Pearson Business School, or Escape Studios Open Day and you want to make sure you make the most out of your time spent at our campus. Take a look at our top 5 recommended questions for you to ask yourself throughout the day:
1. Which course is right for me?
If you haven’t decided already, first and foremost you need to think about which course is right for you. During the day there will be subject talks, outlining the course and the core modules and electives you can study. You may want to take a look at our course brochures, or ask any of our expert tutors about the details of our degrees.
2. What is student life like at Pearson College London?
Studying for a degree will be a new and unique experience - so it is important to consider what other opportunities will be available to you while you’re not studying hard. At Pearson College London, we have a Pearson College Student Association (PCSA) who arrange various clubs, societies and events (including the all-important Freshers Week!), as well as a Student Experience Team. Just ask one of our student ambassadors to find out more.
3. What accommodation am I looking for?
Although we don’t have our own student halls, we are partnered with the University of London Housing Services who offer help and legal advice in looking for accommodation - all for free! We also work closely with Tufnell House and Grand Felda House (some of our students’ favourites) if you’re seeking accommodation in London. A lot of our students who already live in the London area also decide to stay at home and commute to Pearson College London, so make sure you evaluate all your options.
4. Does Pearson College London suit my needs?
Different institutions will offer different opportunities and experiences. If you’re looking at getting exposure to real industry experience, then Pearson College London may be the right choice for you due to our wide range of student conferences and industry workshops, as well as guaranteed internships for Pearson Business School, feedback from professionals for Escape Studios and much, much more.
You may also want to ask about the student support on offer. For example, at Pearson College London we have a student councillor and personal tutors that you’ll be assigned to from day one. Our student services team will also be on hand to answer any questions on the day.
5. What happens after graduating?
Thanks to our connections to industry, our Alumni have gone on to work for some fantastic companies including BBC, Snapchat and Dyson (to name but a few!). At our Open Days, some of our Alumni will return to give talks on their experiences, and will be available to chat with afterwards. Throughout your degree, our tutors will continuously help you with your CV / showreel to help you gain the best opportunities possible after graduating, and our Open Days are a great chance to find out how a degree from Pearson College London can help you stand out from the crowd.
People you can talk to
As well as these five questions, you may have your own questions you may want to ask - but who should you ask them to? On the day, there will be Student Ambassadors, Tutors, Applicant Advisors, Admissions Officers and Industry Speakers that will all be happy to answer any questions you may have. Remember, if you forget to ask any questions, you can always call us, send an email or chat to us on LiveChat for more information.
