Meet the Student Experience team

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

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

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

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

If you have listed a learning disability on your application our support officers will arrange a meeting during enrolment and induction to discuss any assistance that you may need during your studies

In addition to the support and guidance of the Student Experience team, SAE students have access to the online mental health and wellbeing platform, Togetherall.

Togetherall is an anonymized 24/7 online global community where students can receive peer support and guidance, moderated by trained mental health professionals, as well as access a wide range of self-resilience building courses.


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.

You can apply for DSA funding separately or alongside your loan from student finance. It is important that you do this prior to the start of term to ensure support will be in place.

Information and guidance on how to apply

Disabled Students Allowance for individuals studying at SAE Institute is available through our partner Middlesex University and the North London Regional Access Centre (NLRAC).

If you believe that you're eligible for DSA and would like to arrange an assessment or find out more, please visit the below links.
