Visual effects are at the core of the moving image industry - from blockbuster movies to high impact adverts. Throughout our two-year degree, you’ll learn modelling, 3D animation and motion capture to tell your story and release your ideas from page to screen.

Our renowned course places a strong emphasis on equipping you with the tools you’ll need to manipulate your creations as well as the various pre-production planning processes. You’ll also explore lighting, rendering and camera steps to bring computer generated imagery, environments and particle effects to life.

The gaming industry moves as quickly as the technology grows to create new and astounding effects. There is a real need for fresh imagination matched by technical skill to bring characters and their challenges into a gamer’s world in an immersive way.

Our course explores all facets of the game animation industry, from anatomy studies for precise character modelling to intricate textures and environments. During the course of your studies, you’ll create 3D art for games played across multiple platforms and build worlds that players want to lose themselves in.

Our graduates are employed across the audio industry and have worked with artists from Mark Ronson to Beyoncé. They are winners of Oscars, BAFTAS and Grammys.

Whether you want to work in music production, post production for film or TV, live sound, radio broadcasting, sound design, game sound or in one of the many different areas of the audio industry, the Audio Production degree gives you the knowledge and practical skills needed for a successful career.

We have been training industry-ready audio professionals since 1976 and as an SAE graduate, you’ll be joining a truly global community of alumni, mentors and potential employers.

The UK film industry is thriving, and is built on the human desire to experience stories. From fantasy to real-life documentaries, there are many stories to be told and the industry is on a constant search for talented individuals with their own style and voice to tell them.

Through our hands-on curriculum, you’ll learn the technical skills as well as techniques to emotionally engage your audience and draw them into your work. You’ll also gain experience of working both independently and collaboratively on factual and fictional productions, enabling you to graduate with a highly transferable skill set.

With over 33.6m gamers in the UK and with gaming accounting for over 40 per cent of the country’s entertainment industry, there is a clear need for talented games programmers. Through the deconstruction of existing games and the application of advanced programming techniques, we’ll teach you the skills to develop complex, world-based creations and bring your ideas to life.

Games programming graduates from SAE have gone on to work for blue chip organisations such as Microsoft and Bloomberg and have worked on titles including Pokémon Art Academy, Lego Lord of the Rings and GastroGnome.
