Our History

SAE Institute Cape Town

The School of Audio Engineering enrolled its first class of students in February 1977 in Sydney Australia, and now features 56 campuses in 23 counties, making it the largest and most credible provider of tertiary education in creative media technologies in the world.

SAE changed its name to SAE Institute in the latter 1990s upon expanding its portfolio of courses to include animation, gaming, filmmaking, and web design.   

In 2008 we chose Cape Town as the location for our first campus in Africa, as the Mother City is the recognised creative capital of the continent. Come to the City that was named The World’s Best Destination in TripAdvisor’s 2011 Travelers’ Choice Awards, was voted World Design Capital 2014, and is home to Table Mountain that is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. 

Our campus offers higher education qualifications and short courses in animation, filmmaking, and sound production, and we enrol Students from all across the globe who seek a life changing experience in our spectacular facilities, supported and mentored by an extremely experienced and compassionate Staff, in one of the most beautiful locations in the world.
