SAE Institute values the importance of the student voice and student feedback within the programme of study and always seeks to respond to student feedback in a positive and timely fashion.
Student Voice at SAE Institute
Students can communicate their feedback about their study at SAE Institute through various channels:
- by completing the induction feedback survey within the first month of study;
- by completing the student feedback survey for each trimester of study;
- through fortnightly Student Representative meetings;
- via their elected Student Representative who attends Campus Board of Studies in week 7 of each trimester of study.
SAE Institute operates a Student Representative system intended to promote communication between the student body and the Institute. The Student Representative group is made up of a team of students that normally consists of one elected Student Representative per cohort (class/intake) for each programme. It provides a forum for constructive debate and is intended to gauge student suggestions, with the aim of implementing effective measures to optimise the learning experience for current and future generations of students.
Board of Studies
Elected Student Representatives from each programme cohort attend their Campus Board of Studies during each trimester of study.
The purpose of the Board of Studies is to provide an effective forum for discussion between students and staff involved in all aspects relating to the academic experience of students in campus programmes with a more formal procedure than is normally the case with the fortnightly student representative meetings.
The membership includes:
● Student Representatives for each programme
● Academic Coordinator (Chair)
● Dean UK
● Head of Quality and Student Experience
● Campus Manager
● Academic staff aligned to the delivery of the programme or modules
● Support services staff
The minutes of Board of Studies are included with the Annual Monitoring Reports that are submitted to Middlesex University for consideration.
SAE Institute UK campuses offer Student Ambassador opportunities to students. Student Ambassadors have the opportunity to work with SAE staff at recruitment and industry engagement events.
SAE Institute provides multiple opportunities for students to participate in events on and off campus with industry, other organisations, students and staff from other organisations including SAE Alumni events. As part of induction we run a "Freshers’ Fair", on each campus with stalls from SAE Institute’s student support, careers and local organisations. We also support students in setting up clubs and societies.
SAE Institute has developed close contacts in the industry over the years, with partner companies offering substantial discounts to students and alumni to help build their professional brand. Manufacturers of software and hardware products, trying to appeal directly to young professionals of all departments, jump at this opportunity and offer discounts of up to 50%. SAE Store offers are reserved for students and alumni of SAE Institute.

Each campus also has negotiated discounts with local shops and restaurants. Please contact your local Campus Manager for a list of discounts. All you need is your SAE Institute student ID card.
Student engagement is proactively encouraged for the enhancement of learning and teaching and all other aspects of the student experience at SAE Institute.
