Entry requirements

Only students who have successfully completed the STA Practitioners Level Horary Certificate Course since January 2020 are eligible to enter this program. At the end of 2019 the certificate level course was significantly developed and expanded. It is this improved and expanded version that now represents our stable horary teaching. This acts as a baseline for further development to advanced level study.

Astrologers who took the STA Practitioners Level Horary Course prior to 2020 must complete the STA Horary Review Course before moving on to the Advanced Level Diploma. This is a specially developed course which is only available to past graduates. It offers a cost-effective way for previous graduates to upgrade their training materials and fulfil the assignment requirements that will raise them to the level of our current Practitioners Level Horary Certificate Course.


The STA Advanced Level Horary Diploma is an enhanced qualification in horary that is issued to astrologers who have succesfully completed the Practitioners Level Horary Certificate Course and also demonstrated that they have ventured into confident and competent horary practice.

There are three stages to this qualification, which essentially requires the successful submission of three different horary judgments on three different topics. For a judgment to qualify as a successful submission it must be assessed to be of a “professional standard” and fulfil a set of key criteria.

The course is delivered as a personal, one-to-one mentorship and assessment scheme (students work with more than one tutor, but throughout the stages tutors engage in personal, direct correspondence). The process of undertaking this course will improve, hone, and refine the ability to compile judgements to a professional standard, whilst building the confidence needed to submit horary work for publication in various external formats.

Benefits that follow the successful completion of the course include:

  • Graduates receive the STA Advanced Level Horary Diploma to verify that their use of horary has been personally and independently assessed, and that they have demonstrated sound knowledge of theory and competence in practice, such that the STA school board is happy to recommend their services to people in need of horary consultations.
  • Graduates are entitled to advertise their fulfilment of our assessment criteria by using the initials STA DipH (School of Traditional Astrology Diploma in Horary) in promoting their astrological services.
  • Names of all diploma holders are entered into a public record of our qualifying students.
  • Graduates become admissible for entry into the STA directory of approved and verified horary consultants, which promotes horary services to the public.
  • Graduates qualify for full membership of the APAI: Association of Professional Astrologers International. Details of this organisation available online at www.professionalastrologers.co.uk.
  • Graduates gain access to extra STA resources, and are able to avail themselves of discounted services from STA tutors that support the promotion of their own professional practice.
