Open Days are great opportunities to get a feel for the institution, meet your prospective lecturers, and most importantly answer as many questions as possible that you may have. The day is designed so you make the most out of your visit and provide insight into what life is like as a student at Pearson College London.
The Welcome Talk
The welcome talk consists of a brief overview of Pearson College London, the history behind our institution, why we’re different to your more traditional university choices, and an overview of what courses we have to offer. This will provide a foundational understanding of what Pearson College is about. This includes guaranteed internships*, industry days and connections as well as industry professionals as academic lecturers.
“I went to a Pearson Business School open day and felt like it was somewhere I would really fit in. They were offering me a hands-on industry experience in a smaller university”
Melissa Wimble (Business Management with Marketing Student)
The alumni panel consists of students who have graduated from Pearson College and are now in a range of employment from Dyson, to Snapchat, Microsoft and more! We believe it is important that students can gain first-hand insight from alumni who have already gone through the process of obtaining the degree and ask them what the experience was like as well as what they have gained from it.
For example, last year we had Rachel Ruff come in and talk about their current job at Pearson College London as an Alumni Relations Manager.
This is then followed by talks from subject leaders here at Pearson College London who will be teaching during the lectures and seminars.They will provide insight into the modules you will be studying as well as how they are assessed. Additionally, there will also be current students who are studying these subjects to give you the best insight into what it's like studying the subjects as well as some tips and tricks!
Moving away from home is a big step, we understand that for many students this may be the first time you have moved out of home and may be out of your comfort zone a little. Which is why we have provided accommodation talks so that you feel confident making the first move out of home. You will gain insight into the current accommodation options we have as well as the support available for finding your own. Have a look at our accommodation page to gain a feel of what we have to offer so that you have your questions ready for the open day.
