SAE Creative Media Institute announced today that it has been awarded Self Accrediting Authority (SAA) status by Australia’s higher education regulator, the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA). The decision enables SAE to accredit its own programs up to bachelor degree level across the fields of Creative Arts and Information Technology.

Chair of SAE’s Board of Directors, Dr Peter Ryan, said it was a fantastic achievement that affirmed SAE’s reputation as a leading provider of high quality education programs to aspiring creatives.

“SAE continues to go from strength to strength in its journey as one of Australia’s largest and most respected higher education providers,” Dr Ryan said.

“In fact, SAE is one of only 12 independent higher education providers to achieve self-accrediting status.

“This achievement is testament to the Institute’s high standards of academic excellence and governance Ð and its commitment to delivering exceptional student experiences and outcomes.”

SAE forms part of a global SAE network delivering programs to more than 10,000 students in 23 countries. The Executive General Manager of SAE Global, Matt Evans, said SAA accreditation was a significant milestone for the Institute.

“With the ability to self-accredit new programs, SAE can now respond even more quickly and effectively to the ever-changing needs of students, employers and the creative media sector.

“Our focus continues to be on equipping students with the skills they need to meet the workforce needs of the future by ensuring the highest standards of learning and teaching.”
