For those interested in furthering their skills in the realm of film, the SAE Institute has been given the green light to run its Bachelor of Film Arts, with the course commencing with its first intake on January 25, 2016.

In the institute’s endeavour to equip students with the skills and knowledge required to be fully prepared for the industry when they graduate, the course is highly practical. The latest equipment is also available for students to learn and experiment with, the most recent purchase by SAE being a DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone.

“It’s critical that our students get their hands on the latest gear,” explains head of film Sam Kiwan. “Using a drone as part of making a film might seem cutting edge now, but, in a few years, this kind of technology will be commonplace. Part of our job is to train students for that new world.”

With only one intake and places strictly limited, head to to find out more about the SAE’s Diploma in Film Making and Bachelor of Film Arts courses.
