Thank you for your application for CERT/ Astronomy Cert/UCLAN Preston

Recommended Posts

I have logged in and can run all the software applications. I saw the workbook at the NLO Astro Fair on the UCLAN stand. Looks awsome!

I reckon they've all been on holiday for a few months. Hopefully now we're into the new academic year they'll be showing a bit more life.

Let's hope so. I've been offered a place and paid in full 3 weeks ago but not been enrolled yet!

Sad to say my application for Certificate in Astronomy has been a bit of a shambles I applied 26 June and am still not accepted! In spite of numerous follow up emails and calls, I do know I have academic acceptance because I got a got a friendly email from Prof. Bromage.

Applied for Certificate in Cosmology and accepted paid £475 as I live abroad. Got the Kindle version of the book and worked my way through it - excellent.

Received two emails regarding Cert in Astronomy this morning.

The first with an unconditional letter and how to enroll instructions, the second with Uclan user name and password and details of how to install the UCLan computer applications which I duly did successfully, although I've just noticed as a distance learning student I should not be able to!

Followed the instructions on how to enroll

'Sorry but you are not eligible to use online enrolment because:

At this time the system does not record you as eligible to use this service. Please contact your school on 01772 893312, or local administrator for further instructions.'

Frankly words fail me.

I am in the same situation as you (studying 2 modules). I believe they are used to people only doing one module. I'm sure that it will all be resolved before we start...

On that note, does anyone know when we start?

I'm enrolled on the Cert in Astrobiology and so far can say that my application and enrolment has gone without a hitch. Really looking forward to it. Is anyone else doing the Astrobiology course?

the course starts the 10th october and there's a few issues with the uni network system, its a mix up with the fee's but you are enrolled so dont worry about it and sanmatt an old forum member is the course rep At least, she's supposed to be for the distance learning lot.

Hows it going with you guys? Are the various courses good so far? and is it presenting you with a gentle learning curve, especially on the learning front?

Quite the opposite, I think :) They've dropped us in at the deep end with co-ordinate systems and measurements etc. I don't have a major issue with the maths, but I get the impression a few people have had a minor panic. I'm struggling to get my head around visualising the mechanics though, particularly the "First Point of Aries" and how that relates to the celestial sphere and so on.

That sounds worrying. Do you think its just a case that the early parts of the course are maybe a little poorly constructed, or is it a case that the course assumes a high level of understanding from the outset. Not suggesting you guys arent of a high level of understanding of course.
