A Level Art & Design: Architecture at West Midlands Construction UTC

Course description

This course forms part of our technical training for Construction and the Application of IT in the Built Environment Specialism. Students will study the Art and Design A Level qualification from an Architectural or Interior Design perspective to develop their understanding of building design and develop their own creative skills in this field.

Course content

The Art & Design qualification will allow students to explore their creativity within the contexts of Architecture and Interior Design. Students will examine the work of a variety of architects and designers to illustrate a range of design styles and movements. Students will conduct a series of projects to create their own style and, uniquely, will have opportunities to create large scale models and even full scale structures as part of wider projects across the UTC.

Entry requirements

Students will require 5A*-C grades at GCSE including English and Maths. A Grade B GCSE in Art & Design, Graphic Design or Product Design is preferred but is not an essential requirement - students without such qualifications will be expected to discuss their application and experience before selecting this qualification.


Assessment is through a mix of portfolio submition and final project.

Future opportunities

This qualification would suit students who wish to work in Architecture, Interior Design or Landscape Design. It would also support students wishing to work in other aspects of the Built Environment.

Key information


  • More information
    • Springfield Brewery is a beautiful historic site in the centre of Wolverhampton. Together WMCUTC and the University of Wolverhampton are acquiring the site to renovate it and build new facilities to colocate the UTC and the University's School of Architecture and the Built Environment. Together these institutions will create a Centre for Construction Excellence in the heart of the West Midlands. Students joining the UTC in September 2015 will have the unique opportunity to be directly involved in the Design and Build processes of their own UTC. This will mean that during year 1 students will be based at an alternative school site in Wolverhampton from which they can engage in the construction of this amazing site.
