The course starts in February 2023, and students will have the ability to learn from the comfort of their homes. Applications are currently open for the degree.

As one of the world’s leading educators in creative media arts, SAE Institute Dubai is at the forefront of delivering cutting-edge educational programs to students from around the world. The new eight-trimester degree provides critical skills essential in creative design, a portfolio of work and practical experience in the industry.

Training in industry-standard software tools such as Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Adobe XD, and After Effects is provided. The dynamic nature of this program  and the option to study part-time, means this course is not only for students fresh out of high school, but also for working professionals looking for flexible part-time study options.

The fast-paced, dynamic three-year degree is an opportunity for anyone to learn skills that will open the way to new career paths.

This is an opportunity for students in the UAE and from around the globe to obtain practical, real-world, and industry-aligned experience through an online approach. A panel of renowned experts from the creative media sectors compiled the academic curriculum.

The institute also offers short courses for those who are passionate about creative media. Their upcoming winter camps provide students with the option to learn about the world of artistic production. Choose from a range of courses, including animation for pixel aficionados, film for visionaries, design for creatives, gaming for technical fun and much more.
