First Nations PeopleSAE seeks to enrich the experience of all of its students through meaningful interaction with Australia's first people - Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders
SAE aims to integrate the stories and practices of Australia's first peoples into our curriculum and assessment practices as a regular theme, retelling the stories of Australia's first people through creative media to ensure that these stories can be told for generations to come.
SAE acknowledges the significant role in which work experience, family and community engagement play in preparing students for further study. SAE will evaluate these factors to support students in gaining entry to SAE’s programs, view our Student Selection Policy for more information.
Creative Media Scholarships are also available to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and provide full financial cover for tuition fees to scholarship recipients for more information, view SAE’s Scholarships.
