February 2024. This website is being completely rebuilt. The information in this current website is correct, but you may need to download the questionnaire (astrologyquestions) and the enrolment forms. These are right at the end of the Enrol Page, under the PayPal section.
One to one tuition
At the moment we teach by email and/or post and you are assigned a tutor. You can study in your own time and are not confined to set times and dates. You receive one-to-one tuition.
Later in 2024, we aim to start running online classes, beginning with the Taster and Foundation Courses. These will be limited in size and will be quite small to ensure that students receive enough attention from their tutor.
What does tuition include?
Our Foundation and Diploma courses are modular. You receive a Manual for each module you enrol on. This gives you the lessons. You follow instructions in a Course Manual which tells you which lessons to read in the Manual and gives you the exercises. You send most of the exercises to your tutor when you have finished them. Your tutor responds to your exercises and you can ask him or her any questions in relation to the module you are enrolled on. Online classes will work in the same way, but you will have live teaching sessions with your tutor, as well as receiving the Manual and the Course Manual.
When you enrol on a module, you are given a comprehensive Guide to the course you are enrolled on. This gives information on how to proceed, tuition periods and extension fees, complaints’ procedure, any essential books and reference materials you need. and information on computer calculation software. Note, however, essential books and reference materials are kept to a minimum, and our course material is very comprehensive. You do not need to buy calculation software, but many astrologers do.
Study Astrology with us
We run three courses.
The Taster Course
You may be familiar with horoscopes in newspapers, magazines and on social media, but you may know next to nothing about astrology. This course is short and, after you have completed it, you can decide whether astrology is for you and take your studies further. There is no obligation to enrol on the Taster Course whether you know anything about astrology or not.
The Foundation Course
In three modules, you learn about the birth chart, what it is, what information it can give about ourselves, and how to interpret it. It introduces you to astrologycollege.com’s Code of Ethics and helps you to start working safely with clients. We teach you the astronomy of the solar system you need to know about so that it all makes sense, and finally how to calculate birth or event charts. You are also introduced to astrological calculation software.
By the time you have finished the Foundation Course, you should be able to interpret a birth chart with some confidence in a halpful way.
The Diploma Course
This course is in five modules. You are introduced to more interpretation techniques building on the skills you have learnt in the Foundation Course. It covers forecasting techniques in common use and how to apply them. The Code of Ethics is covered in more depth, and you are encouraged to start working with clients. The course includes a section on synastry – the study of relationships. There are the history of astrology, astronomy, and social and political astrology sections. The latter is known as mundane astrology.
People learn astrology for many different reasons. You may want to understand yourself in a different way and use it for personal development. Your interests may be more impersonal, such as taking up an interest in political astrology, or the astrology of global events. Whatever your reasons, there is no obligation to take exams.
However, if you would like to start working as a professional astrologer, seeing clients, we absolutely encourage you to take exams. There are two sets of exams: the Certificate Examinations which are taken after you have done the Foundation Course; and the Diploma Examinations which you take after you have finished the Diploma Course.
While we try and be as clear as possible in the exam setting, i.e. there are no trick questions, be aware that they are not an easy ride. the examiners want to know that you understand various astrological techniques in both the interpretation and analysis of a birth chart, in mundane astrology, the history of astrology, and in using forecasting techniques. Most importantly, the examiners want to know that you can work safely with clients, treating them with respect and taking into account ethical considerations.
Both the Foundation and Diploma examinations include project work, as well as answering exam questions in a given time period, such as a weekend.
The course material can be sent in pdf format via email, or in the post. The fees listed on the Our Courses pages are for pdf format only. If you would like the course material in hard copy, it is an extra £25 for the modules and an extra £5 for the Taster Course.
