The Diploma will be awarded to students who have completed
the course and demonstrated they have gained an
understanding of basic theosophical principles by passing an
end-of-year ‘open book’ examination.
One month is allowed for revision and completion prior to
the exam and the Diploma is awarded once all exam papers
have been marked at the end of the year. Diploma
certificates will be issued in January 2020.
A total of one hundred and eleven students enrolled for the
course this year, and as well as many members from the U.K.,
students from countries across the world also take part.
These include India, America, Africa, Russia, Italy,
Switzerland, Germany, Canada, and New Zealand.
The Diploma will demonstrate that you have reached a
comprehensive level of understanding over a wide range of
metaphysical subjects. Lecturers and course leaders on
spirituality would do well to have this Diploma to their
credit as it shows that they are not just speaking from a
narrow field of interest but have a comprehensive knowledge
of these spiritual principles to draw upon.
Value of the Diploma in Theosophy
The Diploma develops a fuller understanding of the Ageless
Wisdom, which is invaluable for many of the modern spiritual
services, such as healing, spiritual counselling, yoga, and
a host of therapies. Theosophical knowledge underpins the
core principles and values which lie behind these
activities. It is of interest to all those who have an
enquiring mind and who wish to know about the esoteric
There have been many courses in Theosophy but never before a
comprehensive Diploma awarded through examination. Only the
Theosophical Society has the authority to offer a genuine
Theosophical Diploma that carries some real value and will
be respected as a true mark of achievement. The Diploma is
not an academic award, yet it will nevertheless have a very
meaningful and true value within spiritual circles.
