Studying Astrology in Online Classes

Studying with us via our 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.

Upon enrolment, you will 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, Raphael’s Ephemeris for one particular year, but you may also wish to supplement your learning with a little additional reading each week, if you have time. 

Visit our Courses Overview page for details of course content.

Joining an Online Class

The online classes schedule is given below, with links for enrolment conveniently under the set dates.

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. You’ll see that option when you click to book Module 1. Likewise, students who enrol on Module 4 will be given priority booking status for Modules 5 and 6, in order to maintain continuity of study.

Prior to joining the online classes for the first time, you are expected to attend the Induction Session. Here you will meet your course tutors and fellow students and learn how to participate using the online platform. Even if you have taken online classes with us already and are joining us for the Diploma, it is helpful for you to attend the Induction Session to meet your tutors and fellow students.

Please make sure you access the online classroom about 15 minutes before the start time, as each session will begin promptly.

A Note About Class Times
Class times are in Local Time – either Zone Standard Time or Daylight Saving Time, whichever is in operation. The start time of your class may therefore shift by one hour if the switch from GMT or Pacific Standard Time does not coincide with your region’s change from Standard Time to Daylight Time. If you have any queries, contact the Online Classes Manager (see below) or check with your tutors.

Use the Time Zone Converter at timeanddate.com to determine class times for your time zone.

Technical Specifications

The Faculty of Astrological Studies uses Zoom as the platform for online classes. You can join the class using a desktop or laptop computer (PC or Mac) or a tablet. You will need to have good internet access, a webcam and a microphone. 

When you first enrol, you will be sent an email confirming your enrolment which will contain  instructions for connecting to and navigating the online classroom. Your tutor will email you the links to enter all sessions of your class. For full technical information, read Online Classes: Guide and Instructions.

Prior to enrolment, please read the Conditions of Enrolment for Online Classes.

Important Points

  • In order to gain module credits towards the Certificate or Diploma, you must attend a minimum of 75% of all sessions in the module.
  • Online Classes are not recorded. The prime reason is that students’ charts are often discussed in the classes, and knowledge of chart details and personal anecdotes should have no way of extending beyond the class members.
  • The codes FC-1, FC-2, FC-3, etc. are for internal use to help identify different classes of the Foundation Course running concurrently. Diploma Level courses have been tagged Dip1-1, Dip1-2, etc. These codes do not imply a sequence of classes.
