The Sydney campus is located in the heart of Sydney's games industry, surrounded by both established developers and independent studios. Sydney is also home to Australia's largest visual effects studio, Animal Logic, who routinely hire AIE's highly sought after graduates.
Students studying at the Sydney campus are fortunate enough to be surrounded by a thriving games and film community and are provided with many opportunities including networking events, film and games festivals plus industry events.

Students are only a short distance away from the Sydney CBD and the campus is surrounded by parks with easy access to public transport.

Students who are moving to Sydney to study with AIE will no doubt be looking for a place to call home for the next few years. There are a range of options available to students and AIE is happy to assist and provide guidance to students who may be unfamiliar with the area.
As we are located amongst a number of other educational institutions, there is a lot of student accommodation options in the immediate area. Students may choose to source their own student accommodation through sites like Gumtree.com.au or flatmatefinder.com.au, or, choose a structured student accommodation environment like iglu.com.au or unilodge.com.au (we don’t endorse any particular product and acknowledge that there are probably some very valid options we have no listed here). We are also happy to put notices up on our internal notice boards as our student’s often have room to rent in their places or might also be looking for accommodation at the same time.
AIE’s Student Liaison Officers are on hand to provide guidance in the area if required.
