UK: The SAE Institute's London operation is expected to move from its current location on Caledonian Road to a more modern seven-storey campus on Kingsland Road in the second half of this year. The new 18,000sqft facility will "accommodate more students with even more resources", reports PSN-e.
Although the precise details are still in the process of being finalised, it is expected that the Kingsland Road site will house 11 audio studios, a new film mixing theatre (featuring a Neve DFC PS/1 console), four video editing studios and green screen capabilities, among other features.
"With this latest development we're moving SAE London to Hoxton, the heart of creativity in one of the world's most vibrant and important cities," said SAE Institute founder Tom Misner. "Once again we're underlining SAE Institute's commitment to learning, to technology and to the industries our students train to be a part of. But most of all it's about the commitment to our students. SAE Institute has consistently raised the bar when setting benchmarks for learning, but with this new facility we're taking things to a whole new level."
The news follows the February announcement that the schoole is set to open the largest SAE Institute to date - and reportedly the world's biggest technology school - in Littlemore in Oxford later in the year. The capacious facility will become the global headquarters of the SAE operation, as well as the flagship school among the 50 Institutes that already exist on five continents.
