Length of Course

You are free to study this course at your own pace but we suggest you should be able to complete it in 6 months. If your study is stretched over a longer period of time, continuity is lost and learning is not as effective. 15-30 minutes study every day is a more efficient way of learning than an intense session once a week. If you are new to distance learning and find the prospect of studying on your own a little daunting, we have included a few tips on study techniques at the beginning of the course.

When you have successfully completed the course, you will receive a Record of Achievement, a discount voucher for a personal handwriting analysis and a small discount for the Advanced Diploma Course in Graphology.

Cost: £150 for email version

Advanced Diploma Course in Graphology

The Cambridge School of Graphology offers an advanced handwriting analysis course that will provide you with a professional qualification in graphology. When you have successfully completed the course of study, you will receive a certificated Diploma which will entitle you to practise as a professional handwriting analyst.

From this course you will learn how to produce an in-depth and comprehensive analysis from any individual's handwriting, whether it is written in English or any other language. The basics remain the same.

This course is distinctive in that it incorporates the principles of both Trait Stroke and Gestaltist schools of thought. By combining the two schools within this course, you will gain a richer and more detailed awareness of how to create the portrait of the writer.

As a student you do not need to have any previous qualifications before you start on this voyage of discovery.

The course consists of 30 lessons plus the final examination

Forensic graphology covers many areas of investigation such as signature authentication, verifying handwriting on documents legal and non legal, comparisons of a suspect's handwriting with poison pen letters.

Just like fingerprints, handwriting is unique to each individual. Once we have learned to write as a child, the way we write becomes an unconscious act and completely embedded in our subconscious and is difficult to disguise. A forger is unlikely to be aware of the nuances of a person's handwriting just by eyeballing the writing.

A forensic graphologist uses a number of tools and pieces of equipment to detect forgeries and obliterations and these are dealt with throughout the course.


Half of the course will concentrate on handwriting analysis and the other half of the course will concentrate on document examination.

Students will receive a good level of knowledge and understanding on the principles of graphology and how this knowledge and acquired level of expertise can be applied forensically to the study of handwriting on various types of documentation.

Different types of forged documents will be looked at as well as anonymous and poison pen letters.

We expect students to take at least one to two years to complete the course depending on time and commitment.

Students can expect to receive the following:
