Student Support on Campus
Every SAE Institute campus has a Student Support Officer who can help with day to day academic support.
Student Support Officers are here to assist you with your assessments, particularly with essays and presentation skills. If you have questions regarding the subjects you are studying they will be able to direct you to the relevant lecturers for assistance and can also suggest suitable reading.
If you are struggling to manage your assignments, or want a fresh pair of eyes to read over that all important essay, then a Student Support Officer should be your first point of contact.
When your course begins, if necessary they can create a Student Support Plan to assist with your studies
If you have listed a learning disability on your application our support officers will arrange a meeting during enrolment and induction to discuss any assistance that you may need during your studies.
If you would like to contact the Student Support Officer before your course starts you can get in touch at:
Students with disabilities
SAE Institute has links with many external providers to help support students with disabilities throughout their studies. At present, we do not have any internal, specially trained staff who are able to provide this. Students can apply for funding called Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) to cover the costs of any external help or extra equipment they may need.
Many of our students receive help from DSA funding and have regular meetings with external support workers provided by specialists like Clear Links.
You can apply for DSA funding separately or alongside your loan from student finance. It is important that you do this prior to the start of term to ensure support will be in place.

Needs Assessment meeting
If you have listed a disability on your application form we may invite you to a needs assessment meeting prior to making an offer. This gives us the opportunity to consider your support needs.
Do I need to do anything prior to the meeting?
Please send the Admissions team a copy of your report or letter from GP or in the case of Specific Learning Difficulties a report from a psychologist or a specialist teacher taken on or after your 16th birthday.
What if I don’t have my report?
Get in touch with the Admissions office on 03330 112 315 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
