Welcome to our creative world!



Established in Sydney in 1976 – originally as the world’s first dedicated school of audio engineering (SAE) – the organisation’s rapid early success and the demand for our high-tech, creative and industry-relevant training quickly led to the establishment of nationwide campuses.

Our presence in New Zealand began in 1989 with SAE Auckland opening in Parnell. Officially accredited by the Ministry of Education, our first classes commenced in 1990. This was followed shortly after by a Multimedia Producer Programme.

Today, SAE Auckland spans three buildings in Parnell Village offering Diploma and Bachelors Degree level study across Music, Audio and Film. SAE has concurrently expanded strongly into the global arena as a leading digital media educator.
