Diploma in Channelling Studies
(Channeling Studies)

This Diploma is by independent distance learning (home study).  No textbooks or course materials are supplied. The course will be completed by writing an extended essay based on your previous knowledge. The course is offered without tutor support.

The Diploma is suitable for people with relevant knowledge and experience seeking a qualification which can be gained through writing an extended essay showing a theoretical and/or practical knowledge of channelling (spelled “channeling” in the US) and channelled teachings. Possible examples of study themes may be (but are not limited to): Course in Miracles, Edgar Cayce, Ceanne de Rohan, Vadim Zeland, Ramtha, Seth, Abraham, Zinser/Gerod, or the Pleiadian Collective. If you are a channel you may discuss your own work.

In January 2018 we conducted a thorough revision of the Conscious Courses website and services. In view of the very high standard of essays we received, we know that our students are genuine and competent and well deserve this chance to obtain a self-study qualification. We are therefore setting a new target of a 3,500-word essay which is based on the average minimum number of words required for completing a shorter textbook-based course at UK College of Holistic Training. You may select your own essay title to fit your theme.

An essay of at least 3,500 words will be required that includes most or all of the following points:

The essay may be based on channelled, inspirational  or researched material – please give appropriate references wherever possible, and indicate where the views given are your own and where they are drawn from other sources.  

You will retain copyright of your work.

Suggested reading (not required:)

You can apply at any time. Some students will want to apply before commencing their work on the essay because having subscribed to the course will help to motivate them to complete it.  Others may wish to wait until they have done the essay and then apply, sending the essay at the same time by email.  Choose the method that works best for you, though enrolling for your course first will enable us to send you some helpful information that will increase your chances of passing the course. Most people will be able to complete an essay within a few weeks.  

Useful essay writing and study skills links can be found in our links page.

A printed diploma will be supplied to successful graduates of the course and will be sent by post. The price for UK students includes postage. Extra postage is charged for overseas destinations.  

The certificate will bear the main logo of Conscious Courses and also be inscribed with the details of UK College of Holistic Training, its registered learning provider number, accreditation details and the relevant website addresses.
