About The Campus

SAE Cape Town

Our Cape Town campus is a tour de force of architecture and technology that is housed in the Woodstock Exchange, located at 66 Albert Road, Woodstock.

Our exquisite and purpose-built campus provides our students, staff, and guests with an inspiring environment in which to work and study.

All of our studios are purpose-built rooms that are fully floated, isolated and acoustically treated to provide environments that are sonically neutral and aesthetically spectacular.

About Cape Town

About Cape Town

SAE Institute Cape Town is the first campus SAE has opened in Africa. Cape Town is South Africa’s creative capital, and home to the famous Table Mountain which has been named one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Our city has also been chosen to be the World Design Capital 2014, and so our SAE campus is appropriately located in its heart.

The city is the economic centre of the Western Cape Province, as well as the legislative capital of South Africa. Home to 4 million people, it is one of the most multi-cultural of the cities of the world.

The city has a subtropical Mediterranean climate. It was the highlight of the host cities for the 2010 FIFA World Cup because of its breath-taking scenery, pristine beaches, spectacular and affordable cuisine, and a cultural experience bar non.

The creative media industries in Africa are currently the fastest growing in the world, where the autonomy to create and be entrepreneurial is alive and encouraged. For the price of the tuition alone in the major centers of the world you can receive the globally recognised SAE curriculum and facilities. For the same price with us in Cape Town, you also get a cultural and sensory experience of the highest order.

Africa is unique, energised, vibrant, welcoming and hard working. Join us.
