SAE connects to industry providing you the best opportunities

Our strong industry connections ensure you graduate with the latest industry skills and have one-of-a-kind work placement opportunities, like working backstage at Splendour in the Grass and Bluesfest or mentoring with the likes of organisations like AACTA and SemiPermanent.

With a 45-year history in creative media education and a global footprint across 20 countries, our industry connections are unrivaled.

Our courses are constantly evolving to meet the needs of industry and who better to inform this direction than industry itself. We regularly engage with our Industry Advisory Panel who help shape course content and assessments, define graduate attributes, and consult on the technology required.

Industry experience

Work placement

As part of each Bachelor course is 80 hours of work placement. This gives students an opportunity to put their skills into practice and build their own industry network.

To help students get the most from work placement, each campus Industry Liaison Officer can assist in sourcing and facilitating meaningful work placements.

Through our exclusive industry partnerships, students have the opportunity to work with some of Australia’s largest and well-respected creative businesses.
