Blackpool and the Fylde College is a further and higher education college in Lancashire, England.

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" with the 5 main campuses being Fleetwood Maritime and Nautical Campus, Ashfield Road Campus, Park Road Campus, the University Centre and Ansdell Campus.

The college offers further education courses for the over-16s, a variety of degree courses, many being available as full or 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.

They are the third general further education college in the UK to receive Grade 1 Outstanding through OFSTED and have been designated a National Beacon of Excellence by the government. In a recent QAA inspection they were judged by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) as fully meeting UK standards, with 2 out of the possible 3 additional areas judged as 'commended' and 11 areas of good practice being cited.
