Frequently Asked Questions

About our Courses

How each course is structured?

Each correspondence course is delivered in the form of booklets of lessons which you will receive either by mail or email, at your request, over the duration of your study. These lessons contain reading matter and some will include clear instructions on how to perform certain tasks, such as Meditation CD's or links to sites to download MP3/4 files to listen to during your learning. If you are taking part in a scheduled Webinar you will be advised of a suitable time and place for everyone to join in, or the location of a pre-recorded session to be accessed at your leisure.

How long will my course take to complete?

All the Academy of Esoteric Studies courses are self-paced unless otherwise advised. Generally, we offer 12 months to complete most courses, however some larger courses, such as the Diploma of Spiritual Development, may take up to two years. During this time, you can progress at your own pace provided payment is up-to-date, and extension options are also available in some circumstances. If you are unsure, please ask us about the recommended time for each Course.

How will I be assessed?

At the end of each booklet is a short Assessment of between 10-20 questions so that the tutor can review your understanding of what you have been reading or experiencing. At the end of some Courses there may be an assignment of between 500 and 1000 words on a subject of your own choosing from what you have been learning.

When you finish each lesson you fill out the Assessment and either mail or email it to the AES to be marked. Your results will be returned to you with your next lesson so that you can continue your study. At the end of the Course you complete the assignment and send it to us, where it will be marked and it, and your Certificate of Completion will be mailed to you.

In addition, we recommend that you develop the habit of keeping a journal to note down any thoughts, feelings and experiences as your new understanding of the physical and spiritual worlds develop. The journal is for your own educational and insurance purposes and will not be asked for by the AES, but issuing arising through the journalling can be discussed with your tutor.

What happens if I find coming back to study difficult?

As each Course is self-paced there is no pressure from deadlines, and you can take the time to investigate more deeply subjects that you find of interest that develop from your study. However, if you do feel you are having problems please contact us and we will be happy to help where we can. The team at the AES is dedicated to helping each of you achieve your study goals and are happy to support you via telephone or email discussions as required, at a time that best suits both student and tutor.

When can I get started?

You can enrol at any time and after payment of the appropriate fee your course material will be mailed or emailed to you and you can start straight away. It is expected that you will be able to complete the entire program within the allocated time period.

What recognition will I receive at the end of my course?

Upon successful completion of your course, you will receive your Certificate or Diploma, and will be entitled to use post-nominal letters AES (Academy of Esoteric Studies) plus the course code.

What is the enrolment and payment procedure?

Read the website and decide which you course you would like to study; then contact the Academy via the email address: admin@academyofesotericstudies.com and advise us of your choice.

Alternatively, you can call us on 0402 870 738 and we will guide you through the enrolment process and arrange payment.

Payments may be made by money order, PayPal, credit card or via internet banking. If required, other arrangements can be discussed with the office.

Although the most cost effective way is to pay your course fees upfront, we do offer easy payment plan options to help you in paying off your course.

If you decide to pay by payment plan, you agree to make regular monthly payments from the time of enrolment, regardless of changes in personal circumstances; your lessons will be sent to you incrementally in regards to payment. However, if you do find you are studying faster than your payment plan, you can simply make an extra payment or pause your study until you catch up. An administration fee of $15 applies monthly on all overdue fees.

Can I get a refund?

Should the Academy of Esoteric Studies cancel any course, participants are entitled to a full refund, otherwise no refund can be granted. The Academy of Esoteric Studies reserves the right to change policies, procedures and prices without notice.

Monthly payment plans are due on the first of each month, and late payments include a $15 admin fee.

When you enrol with a payment plan, you are liable for all payments even if you discontinue your study. Failure to remit payment may result in the debt being referred to a debt collection agency for recovery or legal action. Cost will be payable by the debtor.
