Institute forges deal for college student places

OXFORD’S SAE institute for music and film studies has agreed to reserve up to 40 places for City of Oxford College students.

Places will be offered for students to study for degrees in animation, audio production, game programming, music business or film making from September.

City of Oxford College students will also be offered the chance to take part in projects such as testing games and websites produced by SAE students.

Mark Brocklehurst, managing director of SAE Institute UK, based at Littlemore Park, Armstrong Road, Oxford, said: “We’re creating something distinctive and unique in Oxfordshire.

“A progression agreement of this kind is particularly vital in order to widen participation in the county and surrounding areas.”

City of Oxford College curriculum director Pete Reynolds said: “This agreement with SAE Institute will be hugely beneficial to those students completing programmes in creative and digital media.

He added: “We look forward to working with SAE Institute both in terms of student progression, and in terms of the joint projects that will enrich students’ learning while they are at the college.”

Really quite amazing just how much goes on in Littlemore - which my Auntie says is one of the biggest Parishes in Oxfordshire. Unlike Oxford's big Council Estates which seem basically to be dormatories, Littlemore not only has the big Sainsbury's at Heyford Hill, the Oxford Academy school, the Kassam Stadium and leisure businesses along its Grenoble Road, and the local and international firms based in the Oxford Science Park, it is also home to the SAE Institute! And yet it seems to have one of the worst bus services in the City, with Stagecoach running just two buses an hour during the day with the 16/16A, and only one an hour in the evenings and sundays with the 16. Whenever I go there to visit my old Auntie on sundays, I usually takes the Rose Hill bus (two operators running every eight minutes daytime and about 15 minutes evenings) and then walk to the other side of Littlemore, not far from the old Mental Hospital where the SAE Institute is located - and next door to the exclusive and expensive St George's Park residential area, where its high walls and gates once kept its inmates securely inside, and now keep people out!
