Course FAQs

SAE has three intakes per year: January, May and September. Short courses and certificates courses may have different intake timings.

While we recommend students to invest in their own hardware, in particular a laptop and an external hard drive, they are not essential to the course as you can use the computer labs on site. They will, however, make your learning experience easier as you can work off site. A camera is desirable but again not essential as we have cameras on site for your learning experience.

We do not offer on site accommodation for students, however please check our Student Accommodation page to find out more details of accommodation around the campuses.
