Opening an account with us

On this page, you can apply to open an account with us. This means you can order on this website, order via our Customer Services Team or order by order form and be invoiced later. 

Most UK schools and colleges already have an account with Pearson. If you are unsure, please speak to your bursar or finance officer.   

If you already have an account with us, ordering online is simple - just add your items into the shopping basket, checkout, and when prompted, select "I'm ordering using my UK educational establishment account to pay by invoice". If your establishment already has an account with Pearson, you don't need to worry about filling anything out on this page - just start shopping! 

However, if you don't already have an account with us, select the appropriate section below:

Benefits for account holders

Accounts are available for establishments based anywhere in the world. As an account holder you can enjoy a range of benefits, including:


Easy ordering

As an account holder, it's easy to order from us:

  • Online*
  • By email
  • By phone
  • By fax
  • By post


Free trials

Watch out for free online trials on all our online subscriptions products. Free trials generally last for 30 days but this may vary.


Approval and Evaluation Service*

Our Evaluation and Approval packs allow you to try our new resouces in your classroom to make sure they meet your needs.  They contain samples of all items in a course to help you evaluate effectively. These packs are free to account holders for a minimum of 30 days, after which you can either return them, or pay for them and keep them. They are much cheaper than purchasing these items individually.


Inspection service

- Secondary schools and FE colleges only

Resources you may want to adopt in class sets are available on 60 days' free inspection. You can then: pay for the item, or send it back in good condition, or keep it without charge if you order 15 copies or more. All you need to do is tell us you are adopting it.


Simple payment and invoicing

An invoice will be inclosed with any resources you order from us, and will show your agreed payment terms. You can pay by BACS, telegraphic transfers, cheque, credit card (Mastercard or Visa) or debit card.


Delivery - Postage & Packing

Standard delivery is £4.50 for all UK account orders. You can find delivery charges for accounts outside the UK here.
