    What is your ultimate goal? If it is to be an Architect, which your comment about GCSEs and A'levels suggests, then yes, you should go back to college and take the GCSE English, but you could maybe get the UCAS points from an art Foundation year or BTEC rather than A'levels. Birmingham's website ougt to tell you what alternative qualifications they accept or, if not, ring their admissions department.

    Otherwise you are considering three different subjects there. Coventry is validated by the Architects Registration Board (but seemingly not accredited by the RIBA?) so it would count towards part I of become an Architect. I've not looked but I would be surprised if the Wolverhampton combined course was - I think the only ARB validated Interior Architecture programme is at Northumbria.

    I definitely don't want to put you off - both courses and professions gain immeasurably from a greater diversity of experience - but art and design courses are very time-intensive. As both of your children are school age, this may be a good time for you to start thinking about this if you don't also need to work.
