Studying with the Faculty via Distance Learning offers you the freedom to enjoy a flexible study schedule which will fit in perfectly with your own life situation. You can choose to study at home, at work, on the move, in fact anywhere that suits you. Getting started is simple – you can enrol at any time of the year, working at your own pace via email with your personal tutor, who will provide one-to-one feedback and guidance. Each Module comes with a six-month period of tuition, giving you plenty of time to work through the articles and exercises it contains.
While the number of exercises varies between Modules, you can expect to spend perhaps 4-5 hours per week working on them. Your tutor will usually send their feedback on your exercises within three to four working days, and certainly within two weeks, offering general and specific feedback, as well as personal insights and ideas for further reading or alternative approaches. In this way, you are fully supported and encouraged to gradually develop your astrological understanding.
When you enrol, you will be given access to the Faculty’s Online Learning Environment (OLE) which stores all the course material and exercises for each module, and gives you access to the student forums, where you have the opportunity to communicate with other Faculty students from all over the world. The OLE also provides general information about the Faculty and keeps you up to date with the latest announcements.
The beauty of Distance Learning is that is allows you to fit study in around your other commitments and there is no requirement to commit to specific days and times. Yet should your circumstances change, you can also alternate between taking modules via Distance Learning and the London Classes (easily accessible from the UK and continental Europe) or by taking some modules at the Faculty’s annual Summer School, held each year at a college of the University of Oxford.
