Conducted by email, studying with the Faculty via Distance Learning offers you the freedom to enjoy a flexible study schedule to fit around your own life situation.
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 beauty of Distance Learning via Email 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 enrol on your next module in London Classes (easily accessible from the UK and continental Europe) or in Online Classes. Some modules are also made available at the Faculty’s annual Summer School, held each year at a college of the University of Oxford. Once you begin a module in one method of study, you are expected to complete it in that method before switching to another.
Each module: 6 months tuition time + optional extension
Start anytime! When you enrol on a full module in Distance Learning, you are given 6 months tuition time to complete all the exercises in that module. The one exception to this is when taking both pathways at Module 7, you have 9 months tuition time available. Should you require more time for any module, you may purchase a Tuition Extension for £50, giving you an additional 3 months of tuition time. Details are outlined in the Conditions of Enrolment.
The Complete Foundation Course (Modules 1, 2, 3)
For students beginning their studies with us, there is an option to purchase the Complete Foundation Course rather than purchasing Modules 1, 2 and 3 separately. There are two advantages to this option:
- You are offered 18 months tuition time for the full Foundation Course, so if you complete Module 1 in 5 months rather than the usual 6 months, for example, you can ‘bank’ the extra month towards Module 2 or 3.
- You save £60 compared to the cost of purchasing Modules 1, 2 and 3 separately.
There are two things to keep in mind, however:
- When you purchase modules separately, you can take a break between modules if you need it. With the Complete Foundation Course, you are expected to continue working steadily.
- Should you need any extra time beyond the allotted 18 months, you have only one opportunity to purchase a 3-month extension.
