I'm doing an online course at QANTM (Brisbane), and received this yesterday. Haven't seen it published elsewhere and I thought it might be of interest to people.

As you may or may not know QANTM has been going through some major changes over the
past few months and I am now happy to announce that QANTM Pty. Ltd. has been
purchased by SAE Investments Pty.Ltd. which operates SAE
Institutes around the world.
QANTM, as an entity, will continue to deliver the Certificate, Diploma and Degree
programs you are enrolled in without any major change to your studies.
This is an exciting time for QANTM as we can now look forward to some investment in
infrastructure and resources which will improve your overall experience and provide
you with greater opportunities for future studies through SAE's links with
universities and institutes around the world.
I'm attending there doing a Degree and all i can say is WHOOOOO HOOOOOO.
SAE will inject some sorely needed funds into it. The teachers have been fantastic but there have been a few other areas that certainly could do with a little improvement. Whilst most of these changes will take effect after i leave I certainly feel jealous for the ppl doing the course after me.
yup... SAE have a healthy amount of funds thats for sure...
they recently just purchased 20 Focusrite Liquid channels (they are small digital preamps used in music production)...
at a cost of $6,000aust. each... theres a nice $120,000 bill for someone to pay...
im not sure about multimedia courses, but some students doing Audio degrees have an opportunity to go to byron bay to there SAE campus there...
