Students Talking at SAE


Student Experience Officers are here to assist you with your assessments, particularly essays and presentation skills. If you have questions regarding the subjects you are studying, they can direct you to the relevant lecturers for assistance and suggest suitable reading.

If you struggle to manage your assignments or want fresh eyes to read over that all-important essay, a Student Experience Officer should be your first point of contact.

When your course begins, they can create a Student Support Plan to assist with your studies.

Suppose you have listed a learning disability on your application. In that case, our support officers will arrange a meeting during enrolment and induction to discuss any assistance you need during your studies.

The student experience team

Every SAE Institute campus has a Student Experience Officer who can help with day to day academic and library support.

SAE Institute has links with many external providers to help support students with disabilities throughout their studies.

Disabled Students Allowance (DSA)
Students can apply for funding called Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) to cover the costs of any external help or extra equipment they may need.

Many of our students receive help from DSA funding and have regular meetings with external support workers provided by specialists like Clear Links.
