What our students say...

Guna BunduleBy choosing Faculty of Astrological Studies I know that I have joined one of the best schools in the world. The first period of studies has been a real pleasure and challenge and the result of the Certificate Examination – a surprise and a joy.

 I appreciate the fact that we055 (2) Philippe Sibaud students are not spoon-fed ultimate truths that must be taken at face value. The Faculty encourages a critical, adult approach. This is invaluable. We are given the tools to carve our own path and this is exactly how good teaching should be (and so rarely is). Thank you!

I chose the FAS because it is an Zinnia Sanchezinstitution full of tradition, international recognition and supported by a large number of great astrologers who have been part of it. The program and method of FAS is structured, thorough and applied strictly and rigorously.
