The course will be based around a 4-week, 7 module online learning programme with educator support available for this time. The course modules should be followed in order, but students are free to complete the modules at their own pace during this 4week window.

The course material should take about 6 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. Any additional wines can be found in the Specification. Students can post their tasting

notes in the Online Classroom for review by the educator.
