STUDENT EXPERIENCE

We recognise the transition to tertiary study can be challenging. To make the switch as easy as possible, we have developed a range of student support services designed to provide you with targeted help and a fulfilling student experience. We are committed to supporting you on every step of your learning journey.

Our Student Support Policy outlines what we offer and how you can access it. If you are unsure of what you need, please contact your local Student Services team for advice, or visit student wellbeing.

TERTIARY ADMISSIONS

SAE participates in tertiary education admission centre programs within New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria, enabling students to easily apply online. The admission centres we participate in are:

QTAC ( Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre)

EDUCATION STANDARDS

TEQSA is 'The Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency' (TEQSA) – Australia's independent national regulator of the higher education sector. It aims to uphold education standards for students across various areas of the student education experience. Each year SAE participates in regulated surveys to ensure TEQSA standards are met. SAE also participates in a variety of student satisfaction surveys including QILT.

TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS FOR SAE PROGRAMS

SAE campuses provide students with modern, practical environments for creative media study. The physical resources include industry-standard equipment, software, and reference materials. The layout of SAE campuses is designed to achieve an appropriate balance between:

  • Specialist media production facilities
  • Digitally enabled, dedicated teaching spaces
  • Library and Learning Centres (LLC)
  • Collaborative working spaces (physical and online)
  • Student social spaces.

We recommend that all SAE students have access to either a Mac or PC laptop, with high-speed internet connections, to support their learning away from the campus. Each SAE campus has technical and IT staff on hand to assist with any inquiries or support you may need. SAE's Admissions team can provide you with further information on the technical requirements for your intended course of study.

ENGLISH LANGUAGE SUPPORT

Each SAE campus provides students with regular academic support sessions which are referred to as ‘Strong Foundations’ programs. More information on these sessions and their availability can be found by contacting your local Student Services team. You can also seek bespoke support from SAE's Faculty and Library and Learning Centre staff. Student Services will help you access these services at your campus.
