If you're keen to study for this course but can't commit to the three full days of the standard classed based course then there's now another option.


Why would I take this course as Distance Learning when there is a traditional classroom based taught version?

The key benefit of the Distance Learning format is flexibility.  The classroom based course is WSET’s most popular course but not everyone can commit to the three scheduled full days (or equivalent) of classroom time.  Instead you can work at your own pace and build your own study schedule around your other commitments.


Won’t I miss out on all the wine tasting?

Learning how to taste using the WSET Systematic Approach is a key part of all WSET qualifications and our classroom based option at this level includes over 40 wines.  For the Distance Learning option you will find a list of recommended tasting samples included in your welcome pack to accompany the chapters. The initial Course Overview call with you will include an introduction to the WSET Systematic Approach and some of the assignments include tasting practice. It's then over to you to get as much tasting practice as possible. Look out for wine tasting events local to you and check the WSTA's diary for trade events who will usually be very happy to accommodate a WSET student attending.


How long does the course take if I do it via Distance Learning?

The course has been split into 5 modules, suggested as one module per week, using the WSET Study Pack and Wine Confidence course materials.  However this is only a suggestion and how you allocate time for the recommended 30 hours of study time is really your choice.

There are regular “check-in” points at the end of each module. You will submit your assignment for feedback and at each stage there will an opportunity to discuss any concerns or areas which you feel may require more focus.


Can the exam be taken online?

The examination needs to be done in person, with photographic ID in a venue that has been approved by WSET.  The date, time and venue will be agreed with you, aiming to be convenient as possible.


Do I need to have passed the WSET Level 1 Award in Wines to enrol on this course?

No, you can choose to dive straight in at Level 2.
