Blackrock Further Education Institute (BFEI; formerly Senior College Dun Laoghaire) is a college of further education in Dublin which was established in 1982.

Blackrock Further Education Institute is located in Blackrock, 7 kilometres from Dublin City Centre.
Since its foundation the Institute developed rapidly and was soon providing Accounting, Marketing, Business, Beautician, Creative Multimedia and Interior Design courses for full-time and part-time students. The Institute is now one of the largest educational providers in the Further Education sector and offers full-time, mornings only as well as night courses. The Institute provides awards at QQI Levels 5 and 6 as well as the more advanced BTEC/Edexcel Higher National Diploma.
