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 OLE also provides general information about the Faculty and keeps you up to date with the latest announcements.
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 also alternate between taking modules via Distance Learning and the London Classes (easily accessible from the UK and continental Europe), by Online Classes (see below), or by taking some modules at the Faculty’s annual Summer School, held each year at a college of the University of Oxford.
6 months for each module
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. Should you require more time, 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.
We also offer interactive, fully online classes which provide another medium for study. The online classes follow the same modular syllabus as our Distance Learning and London Classes options, allowing you to choose module-by-module from across the Online Classes, Distance Learning and London Classes learning platforms. Visit our Online Classes page for details.

Some Testimonials from Distance Learning Students
Very good value – tutor gave excellent feedback and additional guidance to further my education – very prompt – very professional – has helped me feel much more confident in my abilities even though this is just the first module.
Module 7 student
My tutor has been extremely encouraging and her astrological expertise and warmth of personality has been obvious throughout the entire course. I am looking forward to working with her on the second half of Module 8.
Module 3 student
Thank you for the brilliant course! It was a foundation course but a professional course. Before my first exam, I feel nervous and worried, but cannot wait to study the next module!
My collaboration with my tutor was excellent. He always encouraged me, he was very polite, open-minded, willing to share his invaluable knowledge and always consistent.
