Applications for 2021 are now open at BCFE


A new year. A new you.

It’s that time of year, to take stock and think about the changes you want to make in your life. I don’t mean going on a diet, taking up running, giving up smoking or cutting back on screen time.

It’s about creating a future for yourself in a job that you love. That first step is applying to college to do a course that will equip you with the necessary skills and qualifications to get your foot on the ladder.

BCFE offers a wide array of courses from social care to business, animation, film and TV production, journalism, games design, visual effects, music, art and design. All departments include a range of courses from QQI Level 4, 5 & 6, Higher National Diplomas and full Honours Degree Programmes at Level 8 in Animation, Games Design & Media Production Management.

The emphasis at BCFE is on practice-based learning. With years of industry experience the staff at BCFE are only too eager to share their expertise and enable you to use specialist industry-standard software and equipment to give you the best advantage in the workplace.

There are thousands of BCFE graduates working in any number of fields. Our social care and tourism graduates are frontline workers and nurses. Our animation, games, TV and film graduates entertain us. Our business graduates keep the economy going. Our media graduates inform us. Our music and art/design graduates comfort and uplift us.

Join them. Your future starts now. Apply today to secure your place. Apply

A PLC course is also a good option if you’re not sure if university is the right choice for you or what career path to take.  It allows you to dip your toe in a certain field that you’re interested in, without having to commit to a three or four-year degree.

You can find out about the opportunities at BCFE at the Virtual Open Day on March 10th and 11th – a unique opportunity for secondary students to chat with colleges, guidance counsellors and even employers about what path best suits them after leaving school. Register for the free two-day event here,
