In addition to our popular classroom courses, WSET Awards in Wines Level 1 and 2 can also be prepared for through an online course of study.

Online study offers students the flexibility to complete their study at a time and place that suits them.

HOW DOES THE WSET ONLINE CLASSROOM WORKS?

Each course has a set start and finish date, with clear guidelines on progression, however there are no fixed times to log-on as there is no “live” delivery of content. Students can complete their learning at times that suit them.Students will learn through a range of independent and/or group activities supported by videos and quizzes, designed to achieve the required learning outcomes to prepare for the examination.

Throughout the course, students will have access to a subject-specialist educator who’ll provide feedback on any assigned exercises and respond to course-related queries.


LOOKING BEHIND THE LABEL

WSET’s Level 2 Award in Wines is an intermediate-level qualification exploring wines, suitable for industry professionals and wine enthusiasts.

This qualification is intended for those wishing to learn about a wide range of wines or those seeking to build on the introductory knowledge gained with the WSET Level 1 Award in Wines. You’ll gain knowledge of the principal and regionally important grape varieties of the world, the regions in which they are grown, and the styles of wine they produce. Through a combination of tasting and theory, you’ll explore the factors that impact style and quality and learn how to describe these wines with confidence.

The course is based around a 5-week, 6-module online programme with a recommendation of 6 hours study per week to cover the online activities and read the relevant chapters in the textbook. Regular access and participation in the course online activities is essential for this mode of study.

The course structure allows the student to work ahead or catch up on the activities and forums. There are no set times to log into the course as there are no live chats or webinars.

The course prepares the student for our qualification 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 wine label terminology and recognise the styles produced by the main grape varieties in key wine regions.

Students should be advised to taste a range of wines during their studies. A list of recommended tasting samples will be sent to the students, but these are not included in the pack (we are working to offer the course with this option, but in the meantime students may contact us if you need help with this). Students can post their tasting notes in the Online Classroom for review by the educator.
