Welcome to Blackburn College

Blackburn College has a heritage going back to 1888, and is the one of the largest and most successful colleges in the country.

Founded in 1888, Blackburn College’s purpose was the provision of technical, employment-focussed education for the people of Blackburn and the surrounding area. Our focus remains the same today. Students travel from across Lancashire and beyond to study at one of the largest Colleges in the UK, on a truly world-class campus, designed to provide high quality learning and acquisition of the skills needed by employers.
