Celebrating our Creative Arts Alumni

Recently, there’s been sad news about creative courses facing cuts across our region. So we wanted to take some time to highlight just some of the incredible alumni that have walked through our doors and have gone on to have sensational careers in their field.

Offering first-class Creative Arts courses is, and will continue to be, at the heart of what we do at City of Wolverhampton College. We are one of only two colleges in the Midlands to offer the full range of courses accredited by the University of the Arts London (UAL) Awarding Body, including Art and Design, Photography, Fashion, Creative Media, Games Design, Music and Performing Arts.

All of our tutors have professional experience in the creative industry and, as a member of the National Skills Academy for Creative and Culture, we have access to professionals from a range of creative sectors to enhance your learning.

Awarded Arts Mark Gold status by Arts Council England for our excellent courses and links with employers we pride ourselves on producing work-ready students equipped with the skills and knowledge to be a success in the industry. Just like these alumni. You may even recognise some of their names…
