Blackpool and The Fylde College is a university college linked to the University of Lancaster.
It has 49 buildings spread over the towns of Blackpool, St Annes, Bispham and three locations in Fleetwood. The college brands itself an "associate college of Lancaster University".
The College offers further education courses for the over-16s, degree courses, and also part time courses. The sites in Fleetwood form a specialised Nautical campus, which teaches MCA-accredited courses for merchant seafarers and offshore workers. The maritime courses are taught in association with Liverpool John Moores University rather than Lancaster University.
