The University of Vedic Astrology was founded by Joni Patry.

  • The entire university if self-paced and entirely online full of students and tutors from around the world. 
  • There are 6 semesters with 8 lessons each you must complete for full certification. The first 5 semesters have a test after each lesson. You will work with your tutor who will grade your test and help you with any questions you may have. Once you have completed the first 5 semesters, you can take the 6th semester, where you work with Joni directly on 7 assignments and a live reading. 
  • There are live webinars you may join every other week, all of which are recorded if you wish to watch later. 
  • We also have a free monthly book club and I offer discounts for astrological conferences where you can meet more like-minded souls. 
  • Students are encouraged to join the University of Vedic Astrology student forum on WhatsApp to communicate with and learn from each other. 
  • You can pay semester by semester, but when you pay up front for the entire University, you save $1,000. Also, when you have paid for all the semesters you can listen in on any of the live webinars regardless of what semester you are taking tests in. Students often tell me this is one of the biggest benefits of paying up front!
  • If you follow along with the group of students that attend the Live webinars for each semester, each semester takes 8 weeks to complete. We have small breaks at some points to allow some that have fallen behind to catch up. When you follow the group the entire certification takes about one year, but always remember you can go at your own pace and take a shorter amount of time or longer. 
  • Within 24 hours of signing up, you will get a welcome note and links and passwords to enter the University website.
  • Once you are a graduate of The University of Vedic Astrology, you may become a tutor. You are also encouraged to write articles for Astrologic Magazine and begin your own platform and astrological business. 
  • Many of our students have gone on to create thriving businesses offering various astrological services. 
  • Additionally, graduates are encouraged to create their own platform of classes on UVA. Shreekala Ram has done this with her Jaimini courses.
