Learning and studying
at SAE Institute Wien

In September, you can start your vocational training or your studies with us. You have the same opportunities to learn and study with us in all our departments:

Professional Qualification – Diploma

In 18 months, the SAE Diploma lays the foundation for your professional entry into the creative industries. A high proportion of practical work enables a sound knowledge of the subject, and many practical applications train your own technical skills at an early stage. Accordingly, this makes the SAE Diploma a technical vocational training with strong industry relevance, flexible time management and a high degree of self-determination

For those who focus on a comprehensive and meaningful portfolio, the newly introduced Advanced Diploma is a very good addition. In addition to an interdisciplinary or cross-semester project as part of a team, this learning section also examines the aspects that are involved in such projects. In this way, you develop a broader view of work processes and interrelationships, while at the same time deepening your technical skills. As a result, you add value to your diploma.

Academic Degree – Bachelor

The study regulations provide for two course parts, the prestigious and industry-recognized Diploma, and an undergraduate part, where additional skills are learned and areas such as creative industry processes, project management, copyright and special techniques are covered. The program culminates in an internationally recognized BA/BSc (Hons), validated by the University of Hertfordshire in London. The standard period of study for the BA/BSc (Hons) including the Diploma is 36 months.
