SAE Early Entry Program

As the global leader in Creative Media education SAE is passionate about supporting the next generation of creative professionals. Built to take the pressure off school students and enable them to focus on their creative future; the Launchpad program is a pathway that allows students to apply for their tertiary studies with SAE before the final school results are released!

At this time, students wishing to apply to study at the Melbourne Campus are required to apply through VTAC. Students are still able to submit an application for Launchpad Early Entry if they wish to progress the qualification component of their application and be eligible for an Early Advisory Letter.

Why should students apply for Launchpad?

This means that SAE does not require your final school results before you apply. So, if you meet entry requirements now, SAE will offer you a place based on your eligibility as long as you finish year 12.

Applying is easy, you will complete a simple application form that indicates your school and course you wish to study.
An SAE Course advisor will then be in touch to confirm your eligibility.
