One of Australia’s best universities for overall student experience
SAE was established in Australia in 1976 as the world’s first audio engineering institute. The early success of SAE and the demand for our practical, theory-based and industry relevant training quickly led to the establishment of other campuses nationwide.
In Australia, SAE provides courses to more than 3000 students across 6 campuses in Brisbane, Byron Bay, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
SAE offers government accredited courses including certificates, diplomas, bachelor degrees and postgraduate programs. Our programs cover 6 specialist discipline streams: Animation, Audio, Design, Film, Games and Web & Mobile
