Studying online offers students the flexibility to fit their studies around their personal commitments and lifestyle. The course is based around a 9 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. Timed multiple-choice feedback tests, short answer style feedback assignments and feedback tastings are included at regular intervals within the programme for students to practice for the exam and check their understanding of the topics. The WSET Level 3 Award in Wines 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.
- Wines are not included in the cost of this course and although it will greatly enhance your learning experience, it is not compulsory to taste any wine.
- Lessons are online but students are required to attend a tasting calibration session and sit their examination with us in person.
- If either your course books or certificate are required outside of South Africa, please contact us for total course fees.
It is considered a prerequisite for candidates planning to study for the WSET Level 4 Diploma. This highly professional qualification is taught by MWs, MW students, WSET Diploma graduates and other senior industry specialists.

Who it is aimed at
- Serious wine lovers who wish to learn about wines in a rigorous and structured manner and gain an internationally-recognised wine qualification.
