Study at SAE Leamington

Our brand-new SAE Leamington Spa campus opened in September 2023, bringing our expertise and high-tech facilities to the Midlands. The site offers a totally new way of learning, alongside industry partners, to give students a true-to-life working environment, real-world training and the in-demand skills they need to work in creative media.

SAE Leamington Campus

The SAE Leamington campus sits alongside our industry partner – Cogent. Cogent are the creative minds who set up The Fold, a workshare space complete with sound studios, edit suites and a green screen in the basement. It’s open to our students, giving them a unique chance to gain real-world experience, collaborate and network.

You’ll find our campus right in the centre of the town and tucked just 5 mins from the train station. There’s a real community feel so we encourage students to get involved with seasonal social events like Halloween, our TableTop board games and regular Anime Club. Here, there’s less of a student-staff barrier than traditional university, so everyone can get used to a professional environment.

Learn all about Leamington

Leamington, sometimes known as ‘Silicon Spa’, is famous for its links with the gaming industry. There’s an emergence of TV and film in the area too, meaning there’s lots of employment and freelance opportunities for any SAE student to grab with both hands.

SAE Leamington is also part of the town’s up-and-coming creative quarter. In the next few years, we expect more organisations to join us, creating a thriving and exciting place to be. Warwick University is not far away so there’s plenty for students to do, great places to eat and events like club nights and meet-ups.
