Course description

The course is based around a four-week, five module online learning programme with educator support available for this time. The course material should take about six hours in total to complete, plus revision time. Regular access and participation in the course online activities is essential for this mode of study.
The course prepares the student for our qualifications and they are guided by a WSET educator. The student can contact the educator any time for the duration of the scheduled course, should they have any questions.
Each module includes a series of independent activities to help students understand the differences between grape varieties and types and styles of wine.
Students should be advised to taste a range of wines during their studies. All the required wines for the course can be found in the online equipment list. Students can post their tasting notes in the Online Classroom for review by the educator.
