Creative Arts and Digital Industries

If you’re applying to do a Creative Arts course, we will need to see either a portfolio of your work or a live/recorded performance evidencing your acting/musical ability.

We will invite you to attend one of our workshop events, during which, our expert tutors will review your portfolio/observe your performance(s).

Our workshop events are also an excellent opportunity to:

  • Spend some time being taught by our programme leaders
  • Meet existing students already studying your chosen course
  • Meet others who may be studying alongside you
  • Tour and utilise our outstanding facilities
  • Discuss your career aspirations with tutors

What will I be doing on the day?

Your invite will confirm the date and time. Once you arrive you will register with us and you will have the opportunity to access information regarding Blackpool and The Fylde College, the course and support available.

You will then be taken as a group to discover what it is like to be a student at Blackpool and The Fylde College, what we can offer and a tour of the campus

After this you will then go with programme leaders of the course you have applied to. Please select the course from the list at the bottom of the page for each individual itinerary of the day and what you will need to prepare. Please note these can be subject to change.

If you cannot attend a Workshop

Submitting your evidence online

We know how difficult it can be to attend in person. To make things easier, we’re happy for you to submit your evidence electronically online e.g. Flickr, Vimeo or YouTube.

Once you’ve uploaded your work to a site, email the link (including any passwords) to, remembering to include:

  • Your full name
  • Your full UCAS Personal ID Number
  • The title of the course you’ve applied for

We would strongly recommend that you come to visit the College if you can, as this will enable you to make an informed decision regarding where and what you want to study.

What happens next

Applicants who have submitted evidence in person will be notified of the Creative Arts Team’s decision within five working days of having attended a workshop event.

If we receive your evidence online, we’ll forward this to the Creative Arts Team who will review it and contact you to discuss taking your application forward. A decision about whether to offer you a place will then be made within five working days. Our decision will be available to view on your UCAS Track account.
