no matter where you live!

Diploma Level 2 (Modules 7, 8, 9)  


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.


Technical specifications

The Faculty of Astrological Studies uses Zoom as the platform for online classes. You can join the class using a desktop computer (PC or Mac) or a tablet.

You will need the following:

  • Good internet access
  • Webcam
  • A built-in microphone or external head-set

When you first enrol, you will be sent an email confirming your enrolment and containing instructions for connecting to and navigating the online classroom. Before each session, you will be sent a link by email which allows you to enter that particular session. For full technical information, read Online Classes: Guide and Instructions.


ONLINE CLASSES PROGRAMME

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

Please note these two important factors, which are outlined in the Conditions of Enrolment:

  • In order to gain credits towards the Certificate or Diploma, there is an attendance requirement. A student must attend a minimum of 75% of all sessions in the module. 
  • Unlike Online Seminars which are recorded, 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 sessions of the Foundation Course which run concurrently. Enrolling on FC3, for example, does NOT require a student to have attended FC-1 and FC-2. Diploma Level I courses have been tagged Dip1-1, Dip1-2 and Dip1-3.

INTERPRETATION WORKSHOP — FOUNDATION LEVEL

Three Wednesday evenings, 6.30–8.30pm (UK Time)
10th, 17th & 24th February ~ with Alejo López
£135 for all three sessions

These are a set of practical webinars. We are going to work together through the interpretation of a whole chart. We will discuss chart balances, planetary significators, the meaning of their signs and houses, their rulerships and aspects, and the lunation cycle, to come up with a comprehensive analysis of a chart. As we work through the chart, we will find emerging themes that can help us structure our interpretation. You will be asked to think, interpret, participate and share your ideas in order to foster your chart reading and synthesizing skills. For you to benefit from these encounters, you are expected to have a good knowledge of planets, signs, houses and aspects.

INTERPRETATION WORKSHOP — INTERMEDIATE LEVEL

Three Monday evenings, 6.30–8.30pm (UK Time)
8th, 15th & 22nd February ~ with Alejo López
£155 for all three sessions

This workshop is intended for students who have completed Modules 4 and 5 (transits, solar returns, progressions and directions) and who want to practise their forecasting skills. It is eminently practical. We tend to think of the natal chart as a picture of the universe in accordance to the moment and place of birth. This freezes the planetary orbits into one instant. But the Cosmos is always in motion. And so is the birth chart. Your natal chart sets your own personal calendar, marking your own personal seasons: a time to grow, a time to commit, a time to thrive… and so many others. The planets, in their generous and constant movement, mark these different stages, helping us acknowledge them and guiding us into a process of development and self-acceptance. This is what this workshop is about: how to see a chart in motion, how to read its possible expression as time goes by. Expect a hands-on workshop in which you will practise the forecasting abilities that you have learned in Modules 4 and 5.
