How the Online Distance Learning Program works:


The WSET’s London Wine & Spirit School has developed a pioneering series of Online Distance Learning Programs to prepare students for WSET qualifications. THIS IS IDEAL FOR STUDENTS WHO CANNOT ATTEND IN-CLASS LECTURES DUE TO SCHEDULING CHALLENGES, OR LIVE TOO FAR FROM OUR TEACHING TEACHING FACILITY. MOREOVER, THE ONLINE PROGRAM ALLOWS THE STUDENT UNLIMITED 24/7 ONLINE ACCESS. FOR EXAMPLE, A STUDENT COULD CHOOSE TO WORK ONLINE 1 HOUR DAILY AT ANYTIME. 

Considerable investment in technology and training has been made to produce these courses in line with educational best practice, so you can expect some of the highest quality online training available. All courses are tutored by WSET Certified Educators who are both knowledgeable and experienced wine and spirit Educators and will hold the WSET Diploma as a minimum qualification.

With the addition of the Study Pack and Examination, this WSET Online Course is designed to be all inclusive.

 

About the Level III Certificate:


This course is recommended for those who have earned the Level II Certificate, or have a good foundation of wine knowledge.  In depth lectures and discussions covering wines and spirits of the world are designed to give a thorough understanding of the principal wines and spirits of the world and their commercial importance. Successful candidates receive the Level III Certificate of the WSET. 

The Level III Award in Wine is available as a 16 week online program of study culminating in an exam at the AWS location in Atlanta.

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 program for students to practice for the exam and check their understanding of the topics.  All of these elements of study are paced by WSET via the designated weekly activities but students can choose to complete the work at any time of day and any day of the week via 24/7 online access.

One group tasting will be scheduled during the course session to familiarize students with the Systematic Approach to Tasting and for the student to partake in tasting exercises.  This tasting will be held at our location in Atlanta.

Getting Started:

Once in the classroom site, you will find a course calendar listing the topics covered for each week, the background reading required, activities relevant to each topic, tasting assignments (students must purchase their own wine) and quizzes.
