Learning and studying
our four models

Academic courses and professional training start in March and September of each year. All our departments offer the same four options for learning and studying at SAE Institute:

Professional Qualification – Diploma

The SAE Diploma opens the door for a career in the creative industries in just 18 months. With a high practical component, you will acquire sound knowledge of the subject, and practical exercises will help you to develop technical skills at an early stage. The SAE Diploma offers professional technical training that equips students with strong, industry-relevant skills. Moreover, it facilitates flexible time management and a high degree of autonomy.

The newly launched Advanced Diploma is an ideal option for those who want to focus on the creation of a comprehensive and substantial portfolio. During the Advanced Diploma, you will complete an interdisciplinary or multi-semester project as part of a team, and you will learn about different aspects and issues associated with such projects. This will enable you to develop a deeper understanding of work processes and interconnecting fields while expanding the technical skills you acquired during the diploma.

Academic Degree – Bachelor

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.

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.
