Welcome to the Faculty of Astrological Studies

Raising the Standard of Astrology since 1948

Founded in London in 1948 we have an international reputation for excellence in astrological education. Our courses are open to all, whether you wish to take a Foundation Course, gain a professional Diploma, or simply attend a module or part-module to brush up your skills in a particular area of astrology.

Faculty Diploma holders include Liz Greene (Patron), Melanie Reinhart (Patron), Howard Sasportas, Julia Parker (Patron) and Charles Harvey, who all went on to become world leaders in astrology. Current Patrons include Rob Hand and Baldur Ebertin; past Patrons include Dane Rudhyar and John Addey

We at the Faculty are greatly saddened to hear of the passing, on the 6th July 2020,  of our patron Baldur Ebertin. Baldur was the son of the great German astrologer Reinhold Ebertin, author of the The Combination of Stellar Influences, the Faculty’s set text for midpoints in Module 7, and the grandson of astrologer Elsbeth Ebertin, famous for predicting the rise of Adolf Hitler. 

On behalf of the Council, our members and our students, we offer our deepest condolences to his family.

Online Classes allow you to engage with your tutors and classmates in a real-time, virtual classroom. Enrolment is limited in these sessions, making it possible to interact, to ask questions, to make short presentations, and to support one another. You are truly involved in an active learning environment… from the comfort of your own home. Read more about Online Classes.

What our students say...

The Distance Learning option was a perfect solution for me. There could not have been a better way for me to learn astrology in a thorough and enjoyable way. I am grateful and proud to call myself a Diploma holder.

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 Lindsay Gladstone, Head of Exams, at exams@astrology.org.uk.
