Study Options

SAE Amman does not offer any part-time BA/diploma degrees. However, there are certified short courses, usually scheduled during the evening, typically between 5.30-8.30 pm. Contact your campus directly if you require further information about available short-term courses.

All SAE courses focus on practical, hands-on delivery. The amount of practical time you experience during your study varies depending on your course. You will always have an opportunity to access campus resources and facilities outside of class times; during campus opening hours.

We carefully design and deliver all our units to help you develop the knowledge you need to be successful in your chosen field of study. Courses and course units at SAE follow best practice teaching and learning.


A diploma is niche skills focused. By undertaking an SAE diploma in Animation, Audio, Film, Digital Media, or Games, you will develop foundation skills in these specific discipline areas. Students can use the SAE diploma as a pathway to degree-level study at SAE and other institutions. Diplomas are a great option for people who did not study before and/or for those looking for an alternative pathway to degree-level studies.

Bachelor’s Degree

A BA degree offers a rigorous combination of niche skills with a greater depth and breadth of theoretical knowledge and analytical skills. This knowledge applies to your creative media discipline and the professional world broadly. A BA degree offers an entry point to professional work, builds portable skills, and develops sustainable, lifelong learning. High learning skills are requisites of the BA degree, and graduate study options are available upon completion. BA degrees are suitable for people looking to develop professional skills and knowledge and build long-term, successful careers in their industry of choice.

Successful creative media graduates need both practical skills and theoretical knowledge. It is important to know the “how” and the “why” of your industry. SAE courses are specifically designed to give you practical expertise and a solid theoretical foundation.

SAE Amman has two intakes per year: March and October. Short courses have different intake timings – Contact us for further information.

Upcoming Open Day details can be found on our Events page.

My Application

SAE does not need any prerequisite knowledge for entry. However, a balanced program of subjects in your senior studies is the best preparation for our programs (if available at your school). If you are interested in visual aspects of creative media (animation, graphic design, web design), then visual arts is great preparation. If you are interested in Audio Production, then music performance or production is ideal. Mathematics is great for game programming. English, especially storytelling and drama, is ideal for Filmmaking.

At SAE, we consider your creative potential and commitment to the Creative Industries, not just your academic history. And this is why regardless of your GPA, you will find a course you are eligible for, check the pages below for more details:

It would be best to make an appointment to see a Student Services Advisor (SSA) at your campus as soon as possible. It would be preferable to get the required medical documentation prior to your appointment with the SSA.

Unfortunately, it is very hard to provide adequate support without the required supporting medical documentation.

Unfortunately, without disclosure to the Student Services Advisor (SSA), there this very little that SAE can do to support you throughout your program. The information you provide is collected for the purpose of developing and approving your student access plan and the provision of other required support to assist you to reach your full potential here at SAE.

The SSA will only disclose your personal or health information to other SAE staff upon your consent. Please feel free to contact the SSA to discuss your concerns.

This is a document prepared by the Student Services Advisor in consultation with yourself as the student. Your SAPD is used to document information about the impact of your disability on your studies. It also outlines reasonable adjustments which you can provide to academic staff each trimester.

No. As a student of SAE, support services are provided free of charge.


In response to the global pandemic, the School of Creative Media at LTUC – SAE had to face the changes forced upon the whole country due to campus closures and social distancing requirements. Therefore, SAE had to quickly shift and adapt to remote learning to ensure classes could resume normally from a distance.

This rapid adaptation was a bit challenging; however, SAE managed to train its instructors before the lockdown, anticipating that the country would face this COVID-19 outbreak.

Successfully, SAE became accustomed to this change and has managed to resume its classes effectively for all programs that had to be delivered on time.

Furthermore, SAE was monitoring and evaluating every step of this change. Consequently, all students’ concerns were solved, to help them cope with this remote studying; some of the measures taken were that SAE has provided internet bundles to all its students and sent PCs/laptops for students to improve their studying experience.

The determination of both SAE and its students made all of this possible!
