The Bachelor’s Degree is part of the “fast-track program” and takes 2 years to complete. This means, you will be qualified faster, be able to enter the job market and start earning sooner. This option combines a compact full-time course with professional training. In addition to studying interdisciplinary content and research methods, practical exercises and projects will help you to gain technical and practical skills.
36-Month Part-Time Degree
Thanks to its modular structure, the part-time Bachelor’s Degree allows students to be flexible and to study at their own pace. Professional and academic components are separated from each other and are taught in a complementary manner. As a rule, the Bachelor’s Degree in the part-time “extended model” is completed after 36 months; depending on your personal situation, the time can also be adjusted.

The SAE Diploma opens the door for a career in the creative industries in just 18 months. With a practical component of 75%, you will acquire sound knowledge of the subject, and practical exercises will help you to develop technical skills at an early stage.

Choice[+]

You can tailor your studies to your individual needs.

+ Flexible campus choice

It doesn’t matter which city you’re in as long as it’s an SAE Media Campus. This means you can attend classroom events and use the equipment at any German-speaking SAE campus.

+ Attend lectures as an external student

Do a little more than just thinking outside the box! If you are interested in a wide range of subjects, you can “sneak in” to the theoretical lectures of any other department.

+ Module AddOn

Specialization is key: take an additional module from another department and expand and deepen your knowledge by adding another subject area. You can choose modules from any department (text link department overview) and add them to your studies for one semester or more.

All modules to individually design your studies are possible in all departments and can be added semester by semester. The career advisory service can make a recommendation based on your ideas.
