Higher Education

We award places based as much on life skills and experience as we do on formal qualifications. As a result, we have a diverse student community made up of college leavers as well as mature students looking to advance or change their career. 

With strong employer links, expert tutors and industry-standard facilities, we provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to secure lifelong career opportunities. Small class sizes also mean you have lots of individual support.

Our competitive fees make higher education affordable. At B&FC, you have access to low-cost sporting and recreational facilities, our bursary and scholarship scheme2 and Blackpool’s low living costs (not to mention abundance of part-time work).

Why not find out more at one of our open days and meet the experts events? Our team of College & School Liaison advisors can also offer help and advice – look out for them at upcoming UCAS events and higher education fairs across the region.
