Pearson College London

Pearson College London encompasses Pearson Business School and Escape Studios. Part of Pearson, a FTSE 100 and global education company, we offer undergraduate degrees in Business Management, that can be combined with Marketing and Entrepreneurship, and Visual Effects, Game Art and Animation, and a range of short courses and postgraduate degrees; all delivered in a boutique environment.



Pearson College London was founded in 2012 by Pearson Plc; as a not-for-profit Higher Education Institution, we offer a different approach to undergraduate and postgraduate degrees through close integration of academia, industry and our learners. 

Escape Studios was founded in 2002 to help bridge the gap between education and industry and provide the industry with tomorrow's digital artists.


It’s rare and exciting to have the opportunity to build a new higher education institution, finding innovative approaches to advancing the student experience through technology, collaboration and workplace practice. Academic excellence and professional relevance underpin everything that we do here – none of our programmes are just degrees. All staff are fully involved in this pioneering journey.


Our academics are primarily tuition focused but many have a passion for research and regularly undertake research projects in collaboration with external organisations, established universities, as well as our own students.


Our students are enterprising and entrepreneurial. They get to work with our start-ups in residence and many alumni have started their own businesses.

Our Pearson Business School alumni have gone on to work for brands such as Nestlé, Sainsbury’s, Microsoft, Dyson, the BBC and General Mills.

Our Escape Studios alumni, dubbed Escapees, have worked on big titles such as Avengers: Endgame, No Time To Die and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Some have started their own studio, worked on award-winning titles or joined industry giants including PlayStation, Industrial Light & Magic or Aardman Animation.
