Why's B&FC the smart place to study?

  • 9 out of 10 graduates in work or further study within 6 months
  • Many degrees awarded by Lancaster University (a UK top 10 university1)
  • Competitive tuition fees
  • Small study groups
  • Lots of individual support

And with our bursary and scholarship scheme2 you could get up to £500 towards the cost of study.

B&FC's degree-level courses are co-created with employers and delivered by expert tutors in industry-standard facilities, providing you with the skills and knowledge needed for fulfilling, lifelong careers.

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. 

Higher and degree apprenticeships

We also offer higher and degree apprenticeships, which combine skilled on-the-job training with higher-level study.

This high-quality alternative to the traditional degree route provides you with the exact skills needed to move your career forward - with course fees paid by the government and your employer.

For further information, please visit our Apprenticeships page.

Access to Higher Education

Degrees make a huge difference. They help you stand out from the competition, and in many jobs degree qualifications are essential.

But what if you don’t yet have the necessary qualifications or experience?

Don't worry. In just 12 months, our Access to Higher Education (HE) programme will get you ready.
