Local Opportunities

We're excited to launch our Local Opportunities page on the Enrichment Hub. This is where you can find local groups and clubs to join outside of B&FC. We know sometimes you might not be able to attend enrichment sessions at college but there is still so much in the community for you to do. If you're part of a group that you think should be added to this page email studentsunion@blackpool.ac.uk with your suggestion.

The National Student Survey (NSS) 2023 is aimed at level 5 foundation degree and level 6 degree students (excluding top ups) who are due to finish their programme between 1 February 2023 and 31 January 2024 . The NSS is your chance to feedback about your course experience so far at B&FC. Having your say will help future students choose their course, and also help B&FC shape our provision and student experience.

Thank you to every student and apprentice who has taken the time to complete the National Student Survey (NSS) so far.  If you haven't already completed the survey and would like to, you can complete the NSS up until 30 April.
