Pearson College London Qualifications

The story of Pearson becoming the UK's largest awarding Organisation did not start with the formation of Edexcel in 1996. It began as long ago as 1836, when a royal charter gave the University of London its first powers to conduct exams and confer degrees on its students.

Pearson College London was established in 2012 with a clear mission – to become the UK’s leading provider of industry-focused university education.

In May 2013, Pearson unveiled a new structure combining its separate education companies, Pearson International and Pearson North America into one Pearson company organised around three global lines of business – School, Higher Education and Professional.
