Your college email will be one of the most important means of communication outside of your classes. You are expected to use email in a professional manner and refrain from any comments which could be regarded as disrespectful or offensive.

Your BCFE email account is only accessible in Ireland. However, if you travel abroad, while you are a student at BCFE, you need to request access to your account before you travel by emailing

Once you are fully registered on the course, BCFE, including your teaching team, will ONLY use your college email, so it is important that you check your messages at least once a day.

This email account also affords you a printing allowance in BCFE.

Office 365

Through your BCFE student network and email account you have access to all the applications contained in Office 365. These include Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Calendar, Forms and as well as the virtual learning environments (VLEs) used in BCFE including Microsoft Teams and Moodle.

All these apps have options to work with them within your internet browser. However, it is recommended that you install them to your computer to get the full functionality of the applications. As students of BCFE, you can install Office 365 on up to five devices.

It is recommended that you work on your assignments on either a laptop or desktop computer and not on a mobile phone. If you do not have your own computer, you can apply for the loan of a laptop while you are studying at BCFE. Please contact the main office in BCFE to discuss your eligibility for a laptop loan. You can also use the student computer rooms on campus and there are computers and study spaces available in Ballyfermot Library which is next door to BCFE’s Main and Media buildings.
