Examinations are open to students of astrologycollege.com.  Unless you want to gain astrologycollege.com’s diploma (Dip.astrol.c)., and work professionally as an astrologer, there is no requirement to take exams.  To gain the Diploma, candidates must take both the Certificate and Diploma exams.

Exams are taken in the candidates’ homes during the autumn and early winter each year.  Exam regulations are issued each year with the dates.  Mock exams are also available.  If you would like a copy of these, please contact the college.
