College is not just about lectures, assignments, homework and exams. It is also about making friends, trying new experiences, being active and healthy, enjoying the social life or pursuing an interest or activity. Blackburn College offers a range of enrichment activities which allow students to do just that.

At the College, we place great value on all citizenship and enrichment activities but it’s not just us. They are highly valued by employers and universities as well and make you stand out from those who have similar qualifications

Campus sport

The Campus Sport programme is a recreational programme designed around fun, development and social engagement. Most sport takes place on campus with like-minded people in a friendly, non-competitive environment; we also work with local partners offering sessions in Cycling, Bouldering and Ice Skating.
