Study at SAE Glasgow

Established in the early 90s, the SAE Glasgow campus is a hub for creatives. Known and loved by people across the industry, our ultra-practical courses give students hands-on experience – in custom-built studios and high-end facilities – right from day dot.

Get to know Glasgow


Glasgow is a buzzing city. It’s a powerhouse for getting up-close with culture and trying new experiences. Think pubs, nightclubs, cinemas, art galleries, museums, libraries and the Hydro concert hall. There are plenty of famous media companies on our doorstep too – Blazing Griffin, Big Mouth audio studio, Channel 4 News and more.

Past students of SAE Glasgow have moved onto big things – with placements that often turn into full employment – at St Luke’s, King Tuts, No Code Games Studio and Clockwork Studios. They’ve even picked up Grammy’s, BAFTAs and short film awards, while some have built relationships with giants like Netflix and the BBC.
