SAE is an international community, with students distributed across over 20 countries and 40 campuses worldwide. As such, it doesn’t have a formal Students’ Union. However, there is a strong institute identity and plenty of organised events and activities for students to participate in.
All three UK campuses organise free talks and events, such as coding lessons and masterclasses led by industry experts. There are also regular performances and film screenings by current students and alumni, and each of the three UK campuses has an active social media presence, where communication between colleagues and the university’s organisational staff can be co-ordinated.
Since SAE Institute doesn’t have a centralised Student’s Union, there are no official clubs and societies on campus. Unofficially, however, there is a wide range of student-organised activities. As a specialist creative media training hub, students live and learn in an environment of like-minded creatives and friends, who frequently collaborate both on and off their courses.
Many students start bands together, establish literary or music groups, design installations, write theatre performances or team up to make films. Each city has plenty of options for local team sports, and each campus has a busy social scene, with students from different courses mingling on-campus and forming groups with shared interests.
SAE Institute offers the choice of living and learning in three vibrant UK city locations.
Scotland’s largest city is a cultural hub of galleries, museums and fascinating art-nouveau architecture. It has some of the finest vegetarian and vegan food in Scotland. The historic Sauchiehall Street boasts top high-street shopping, and the West End is full of lively clubs and bars.
SAE’s London campus is in the trendy East End, close to Shoreditch, and busy with top media companies and countless trendy eateries, bars and pubs. London has excellent public transport links, and it’s easy to visit other parts of the UK and Europe via the extensive railway system.
Liverpool is globally known for its live music scene, it is an UNESCO world city of music, and — of course — the home of the Beatles. With an art gallery scene to rival London’s there are many opportunities to find inspiration, as well as a landscape of restaurants, pubs, clubs and activities.
