Open Day 2019
15 Aug 2019
Over the weekend SAE once again threw open its doors and welcomed everyone in for the biggest event of the year - Open Day!
Visitors from the around the country enjoyed the festivities and vibes of Open Day and experienced what makes SAE a great place to study.
Attendees appreciated a day full of music, creativity and discovery and may have even learnt something new in the fields of audio, games, design, animation, film and AR/VR.
But don’t let us tell you how great it was, attendees from around the country had some lovely things to say about their 2019 Open Day experience.
“Having conversations with students and lecturers really helped me decide on what course I want to study at SAE. And the campus looked awesome!”
“I went to other Open Days which were underwhelming in comparison. Coming here, straight away I could see that SAE knew what they were doing. The campus is really cool!”
"The SAE Byron Open Day was a really fantastic insight into how everything is all connected between each discipline. The course information sessions were really great, I was running around trying to get to all of them! A highlight for me was the Industry Panel, listening to the BluesFest Byron Bay Marketing Director, Rusty Thorpe. An absolute veteran of the music industry, he discussed the relationship between BluesFest and SAE, detailing the opportunities that students get with the internship program. He also talked about touring and working with the world's best musicians from around the globe!"
"It was great to be able to check out the whole campus, and chat to all the staff. I was especially impressed with the soundstage, and all the film set up"
“I found out about the open day from Supanova, I have a strong passion for animation and sound and coming today really inspired me. I love that fact that there are lots of individual disciplines that all specialise in different industries and the fact it’s all very hands on, practical learning by doing. I highly recommend SAE to anyone who’s looking to further their creative career.”
“I came into Open Day not sure of whether I wanted to do Film or Audio - I have an interest in both. After the session with [SAE Film lecturer] David (Crowe) and his explanation of the active and hands on learning, the foley editing and the links to industry - I am leaning towards Film.”
