SAE Institute to invest millions in UK education and move global HQ to new Oxford campus 30/01/08
SAE Institute tell us that they are already the established world leader in providing degree-standard audio, film and multimedia education, and this year theyâ€™re set to open the worldâ€™s biggest technology school alongside the very best seats of learning in the UK. Not only will the Oxford campus be the largest SAE Institute to date â€“ more than 14,200 square meters â€“ itâ€™s also set to become the global headquarters of the SAE operation, the flagship school amongst the 50 existing SAE Institutes that already exist on five continents.
Based in Littlemore, Oxford, the new campus will offer state of the art facilities with a number of fully residential places available for the anticipated influx of overseas students.
SAE founder Tom Misner, who has recently relocated to the UK in order to oversee the development of the new HQ, is extremely pleased with the new acquisition. â€œFor over 30 years now SAE Institute has consistently raised the standard, and this shows that we have no intention of resting on our laurels when it comes to delivering excellence to our students, no matter what field of study they pursue. And with the Oxford campus weâ€™re moving the very heart of SAE to what many consider to be the homeland of global academic excellence.â€� More about SAE Institute Oxford
