Studying at SAE taught me the fundamentals of game development, without it I probably wouldn’t be able to be doing what I am doing right now.

The best memories I have of my time at SAE are my interactions with other students and lecturers. With so many likeminded people surrounding you at all times, you can’t help but be inspired and guided to new and exciting ideas on a daily basis.
