Studying online offers students the flexibility to fit their studies around their personal commitments and lifestyle. The course is based around a 5 week structured online programme with a suggested 6 hours supplementary study time per week. There are no fixed online study times, so students may plan their study times to suit themselves.
Each week consists of a series of online activities, often based around group discussion, with an online tutor allocated to guide the students’ studies. A timed feedback test is provided at the end of each week for students to practice for the exam and assess their understanding of that week’s topics. WSET Level 2 Award in Wines & Spirits Online course covers the same syllabus as the classroom course with students attaining the exact same qualification.
Students register through us, thereafter will receive your WSET course materials and an email from WSET in London with instructions on how to login to the online global classroom.
