New in 2023

New Adelaide Campus

2023 is the year we bring Higher Education to SAE Adelaide. Located near Victoria Square in the heart of the CBD, the Adelaide campus is close to everything you need.

We’ve also got you covered with FEE-HELP-approved Bachelor’s degrees and Diploma’s in Games, Audio, Creative Industries, Music, Film, Animation and Design, so all you need to worry about is creating.

This new campus is stacked with all the tech and equipment you’ll need: digital and analogue studios, gaming consoles, electronic music gear, a multi-purpose film studio, professional digital film cameras and accessories, two edit suites and five computer labs with the latest industry-standard software.

For those who need a quiet space, we’ve carved out dedicated quiet study areas and a large balcony to soak in some sunshine while you work. It’s also a sweet space for events and networking.

New campus. New studios.
