Teesside University, Middlesbrough has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Course overview: This course includes an integrated foundation year - ideal if you are not ready to join Year 1 of the degree directly. In your foundation year (Year 0) you explore the fundamental skills of design through drawing, mark-making and three dimensional workshop practices. You begin to experience the creative process and gain knowledge of art and design history and contexts. This course develops and innovates new approaches to home design, fabrication and construction to inspire the next generation of home designers and innovators. Through a unique partnership with renowned and respected TV architect George Clarke, this course explores new models of home design, fabrication and construction. You are guided through a detailed exploration of methods of construction, such as using off-site manufacture and prefabrication, alternative building materials, and building project locations. You have an opportunity to develop concept models and construct scale models of your designs on campus. After the course: The need for us to design well-built, affordable homes is massive and the construction industry is changing quickly. It was recently announced that Amazon and Google are starting to invest in the home building market. It isn’t just a national change, it’s international – and over the next few years amazing job opportunities are expected to be available for graduates of these courses.

The practice-based elements of all our design courses are taught in a studio environment, supported by a full range of digital resources and workshop facilities. These provide real hands-on experience using up-to-date equipment and processes. We also encourage independent and student-centred learning. Any theoretical work is primarily delivered through illustrated lectures and seminars where you have the opportunity for collective discussion. The work produced is assessed. Design projects are a key feature. Assessment is undertaken against carefully defined criteria and often involves a critique of project-based assignments - this is a process widely used in the design field and allows for staff and peer group appraisal.
