The SAE Institute Ljubljana opened its doors to students interested in the field of audio and electronic music production in autumn 2003. It is part of the Australia-based School of Audio Engineering (SAE) Institute, the largest college worldwide providing education in these fields (with centres in 23 countries) in collaboration with Middlesex University, Great Britain.
Apart from RTV Slovenia, the institute is one of the few institutions in Slovenia that educate and train future professionals in the audio production and media industry. The two-year course in audio production ends with the degree Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Audio Production (Middlesex University), while aspiring electronic music artists and producers can do the short course Electronic Music Production. Other study programmes comprise web design and development and interactive animation.
Courses at SAE are taught in English, though language support in Slovenian and Croatian is also provided. The institute offers free studio production and technical equipment for bands and artists from Slovenia and the region.
