SAE Institute and Qantm College have received top marks in a review by Australia's education standards agency for the quality of its courses, opportunities it creates for students and its industry involvement.
The Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) reviews all higher education providers every five years to ensure that colleges and universities are delivering high quality education to students.
TEQSA recently reviewed SAE and Qantm operations in Australia including colleges in Byron Bay, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.
In its report on the review TEQSA applauded SAE for its positive learning culture, the quality of equipment for students, the global opportunities it offers students and the way it treats its staff.
Colleges close ties with the audio, film and creative media industry were also highlighted with many industry experts helping to design new courses and ensure that all programs were current and up to date.
Deputy CEO of SAE Institute and Qantm College Australia Antonia Mocatta, welcomed the report.
"We are extremely thrilled with the results of this report and to see our hard work and commitment to quality being recognised," she said.
"Our ambition is to enable students the best chance to succeed professionally in the creative and digital media industries, and our facilities, state-of-the-art equipment and unique and positive culture all help us to achieve this."
