Our 1-year non-accredited diplomas (2-years for part-time) are ideal for those that wish to focus on gaining practical skills with flexible teaching hours to allow students to combine their studies with employment.

The timetable is created to cater for applicants to work around their studies.

Our diploma courses are fundamentally aimed at those who do not wish to pursue one of our 2-year degree courses. However, there may be the possibility of completing a bridging module to assess your eligibility onto Year 2 of the degree programme through the process of accreditation of experiential learning (APEL).

You will complete this 12 month course with an SAE Diploma.

* Please note that international students (non UK/EU) are unable to join an SAE Diploma due to current visa restrictions
