What our students say...

Michal GeffenI enrolled in the faculty and started an enriching and fulfilling journey. As a long distance student I met the best professional tutors, who supported me along the way with their insightful feedback on my work. In addition, I could arrange my schedule at my convenience, keep up with my day-to-day work and even complete my second degree at university.

Alejo Lopez cropped homepageThere is also a philosophical journey, as I would call it, and it subtly helps you develop and work on yourself and your approach to life, the world in general and astrology in particular. The Faculty demands that you work on your own perspective on what astrology means to you and what you expect to get from it.

Jackie Morley cropped homepageSomething you may find as you embark on your studies is that your journey becomes something of an inner exploration too and you may find that your perspectives change and your inner being starts to flourish and give light as you explore further into this most precious way of being in synergy with the Cosmos.

Have you checked the expiry date of your module credits?

Remember that module credits expire after 6 years unless you validate them by passing the relevant exam at that level. In other words, if you have obtained all Foundation Course module credits, you will need to pass the Certificate Interpretation Exam within six years of completing Module Three
in order to validate these credits. The same system of validation applies to the intermediate and advanced levels.

If you have questions about the validation of your credits please contact Glòria Roca, Head of Exams, at exams@astrology.org.uk.
