Creative Media Education


What should I take into consideration when choosing to study at SAE?

SAE Institute has been well established for over 30 years and we are the only college of our kind whose qualifications are recognised and accepted internationally.

At SAE we focus just as much on practice, as on theory, so that after graduation, each student will have already gathered an impressive portfolio that will serve on employment purposes.

Our buying power enables us to provide you with the very best selection of equipment and our limited enrollment guarantees you will have substantial access to it.

Another important advantage is the trimester structure at SAE, which enables you to complete your course and join the workforce in an accelerated time.

In short, SAE Institute is the largest and most prestigious private media school in the world and with good reasons.

What kind of employment opportunities can I look forward to after completing my SAE course?

The unique curriculum of SAE Institute - combining practical and theoretical knowledge, allows any graduate to practice their profession since day one upon completion of studies. After all, this is the bare essence of SAE Institute: to ensure that you will learn the techniques and practices needed to maximise your chances of a career once your studies are complete.

Upon completion of your courses, many job opportunities will be made available to you as an SAE graduate, all over the world. You will also have the opportunity to join our Alumni Association, which provides graduates with a very active job placement service in the vast and growing entertainment industries.

Our experience shows that past graduates have found work in their chosen specialised industry and those who have graduated from our degree programs found employment opportunities even beyond these areas. 

What is the relationship between the theoretical and practical aspects of my course?

Courses at SAE are taught 'hands-on' and as part of your course you will be given access to our state of the art studios and facilities. Theoretical topics are discussed and dealt with in formal lectures, and your performance will be gauged through ongoing tests and final exams. For the practical component of the course you will be given access to our extensive studios in addition to normal lectures, to give you ample time to complete your practical assignments.

Does SAE Bucharest teach in English?

All Diplomas are taught in Romanian. However, our short courses can be delivered in English. Please contact us on Bucharest@sae.edu, for more information.

Does SAE provide accommodation?

Unfortunately SAE Bucharest cannot provide direct accommodation at this stage.
However our Administration team will be happy to offer basic assistance to our students in need to relocate to Bucharest.

Can I switch to another branch of SAE during my course?

The best part about studying as part of an International Institution, means you have the opportunity to relocate to any one of our global colleges throughout the duration of your course. Bear in mind the courses around the world commence at different times so it is best to check with your local manager to ensure continuity of studies.

What is the SAE Alumni Association?

The SAE Alumni Association has been set up as a way to keep graduates in touch. As an Alumni member you can search for and find other alumni or just look for special offers from various manufacturers and SAE partners around the globe. There is also an active online job terminal where you can search for job opportunities that await you and a yearly Alumni conference.

When are the deadlines for registration?

Here are no strict deadlines for registration, SAE has two intakes per year and all registrations are considered on a 'first come, first served' basis. As there are a limited number of places available for each intake, it is advisable for you to enroll as soon as you have made the decision to join us.

When do I need to pay my tuition fees?

Fees can be paid in full in advance or on a payment plan. Depending on your payment plan, tuition fees must usually be paid prior to commencing your course/trimester.

What is the SAE Store and how do I gain access to it?
