International Students - Welcome

Welcome to Blackpool and The Fylde College (B&FC), with its 125-year history of providing high quality technical and professional education.
We operate over the 17-mile stretch of Lancashire’s Fylde Coast, just an hour from England’s stunning Lake District National Park and the thriving northern cities of Liverpool and Manchester.
An Ofsted Outstanding college and England’s highest performing large FE college, we benefit from world-class facilities, expert tutors and excellent relationships with local and national employers. Our degree programmes are awarded by Lancaster University, ranked ninth in the UK.
We offer competitive fees and Blackpool itself has a relatively low cost of living, with plenty of student accommodation and good opportunities for part-time work. 
Our specialisms include aerospace, engineering, energy, digital, health, project management and the visitor economy. Many international students study maritime operations at our Fleetwood Nautical Campus, widely recognised as one of the top nautical establishments in the country.
International students do well here and quickly settle into our friendly environment. Our commitment to supporting students to fulfil their future career aspirations has helped to earn us a 94% score for customer satisfaction.
