About us

At Blackpool and The Fylde College, we offer degree programmes awarded by Lancaster University, a UK top 15 university. With 9 out of 10 B&FC graduates in work or further study within one year[1][1] and 40% of our graduates in highly skilled employment earning £33k or more, you can be sure that B&FC will get you where you want to be. 

As a student at B&FC, you will benefit from a wealth of industry experience via our industry specialist tutors, first-class industry-standard facilities and a strong support network that allows you to personalise your learning journey. 

At a time of skills shortages in the UK, we work closely with industry to co-create technical and professional education and training, which develop the skills, knowledge, and attributes that employers need to drive their businesses forward and provides you with rich employment opportunities. There has never been a better time to progress your career with B&FC.

Our new HE campaign

At Blackpool and The Fylde College we welcome a diverse group of learners to study degree-level qualifications with us. They come from all walks of life at different life stages from those progressing directly from college to adult learners wanting to reskill. What they all benefit from, however, is the wraparound support that we provide for every student who studies here, helping you get the most from your studies, realise your career goals and keep your personal life on track.

What makes us different

Here at Blackpool and The Fylde College, we’re all about making things work for you. With attendance from as little as one day a week, you can get on with your studies and life at the same time, whether you’re a busy parent, in full-time employment, or simply want to follow your dreams.   

We are proud to work with over 1,800 employers to ensure that our courses are industry-relevant and stay up to date, giving you the best chance of success in your chosen career. What’s more, all of our courses are delivered in state-of-the-art facilities by industry expert tutors, who keep their skills and knowledge updated and aligned with the courses they teach.  

With all the benefits of a degree from a Top 15 university and all the advantages which come from studying in a more intimate academic setting, B&FC is a great place to do a degree or higher qualification. With smaller class sizes of 15-20, a dynamic curriculum and plenty of one-to-one support, your dream future is in sight.
