Online Classes

ONLINE FOUNDATION COURSE

You can study our Complete Foundation Course
– that's Modules 1, 2, and 3 –
in a  fully online experience!

WEDNESDAYS
6.30-8.30pm UK Time
October 2018 through July 2019
Tutors:  Stevi Gaydon & Carole Taylor

Fast Track TUESDAYS and THURSDAYS
6.30-8.30pm UK Time
January through June 2019
Tutors: Toby Aldren & Deborah Morgan


Studying with us via our new online classes allows you to connect in real time to experienced Faculty tutors and to a small group of fellow students, whilst still giving you the freedom to study from home. The online classroom is a great way to connect, learn the art of astrology, and make friends with other students from around the world!

This new online platform is offered alongside our Distance Learning via Email and London Classes, offering you even more flexibility and choice in your studies with us.

In addition to the weekly online classes, you will have access to extensive written course material which accompanies and supports each module. This material can be downloaded from our private online site.

The course tutors will give instructions each week for reading from this course material, along with small amounts of home study to do in preparation for the following week’s class. You should allow about 2 hours per week to complete this, in your own time. Engaging with the course material is also a useful way of consolidating your learning and perfect for catching up if you have to miss a class.

On enrolment, you will also be supplied with a recommended reading list, with ideas for books to buy and online resources to access. There is only one compulsory text for you to buy at Foundation level (a small and inexpensive publication called Raphael’s Year Ephemeris), but you may also wish to supplement your learning with a little additional reading each week, if you have time.

Throughout the course you will be fully supported by the tutors and encouraged to gradually develop your astrological understanding.

Dates for 2018-2019

The online classes run from 6.30-8.30pm UK local time (either Universal Time or British Summer Time, depending on the time of year). Each term consists of 10 sessions. Please make sure you access the classroom about 15 minutes before the start time, as each session will begin promptly at 6.30pm.

Students enrolled in Module 1 will be given priority booking status for Modules 2 and 3 in order to maintain continuity of study. Another option to secure your place for Modules 2 and 3 is to purchase the Complete Online Foundation Course when enrolling – a savings of £60 over the three terms.

Prior to Module 1, you are expected to attend the one-hour Induction Session. Here you will meet your course tutors and fellow students and learn how to participate using the online platform.

For 2018-19, the Modules of the Wednesday series coincide with the three terms of our London Classes. Enrolling on the Fast Track series (Tuesdays and Thursdays) enables you to complete three terms in the time of two. See below for specific class dates.
