SAE Auckland Celebrates 2023 Open Day

SAE Auckland Celebrates 2023 Open Day

SAE Auckland (SAE), a global leader in creative media education, celebrated a resounding success at its recent Open Day on August 19.

At times, the Tāmaki Makaurau campus, based in Parnell, had queues of aspiring creatives bursting out the door, all eager to explore the cutting-edge facilities and innovative programmes it has to offer.

The open day provided an immersive experience for attendees, offering a first-hand glimpse into what potential students can expect while studying at SAE. Prospective students and their whānau were treated to guided tours of the SAE Auckland campus that features state-of-the-art recording studios, film set and computer labs.

“The energy and enthusiasm displayed by both our guests and our team during the Open Day was truly inspiring,” says campus director Dr Suzette Major. “It’s always thrilling to share our passion for creative media education and demonstrate the endless possibilities that await our students.”

SAE in Parnell has been at the forefront of fostering creativity and innovation for over three decades, empowering students to turn their passion for audio, film, and music into thriving careers. With over 40 campuses worldwide, SAE is truly global and world renowned. The local campus offers diploma and degree qualifications in audio production, music production and screen production.

“More than a quarter of those who attended our SAE open day last week have already applied for a 2024 course”, says student recruitment advisor Amber Leigh Stevens, aka Stevie. Aspiring students who are passionate about pursuing a career in the music, audio, or film industry, but were unable to attend SAE’s open day, can still take a personalised tour. “Just reach out via our website”, explains Stevie. “But given we are already 75% full for the 2024 academic year, potential students need to apply soon.”
