How does the online program work?

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


While WSET online courses are a great option for many, it is important to be aware of the following requirements:

  • WSET examinations are not online, students will be required to attend the examination in person. 

  • For qualifications at level 2 Wine & Spirit IQ will run a tasting technique workshop to support their online learning.

  • Suggested wine samples are not  included in the cost of an online course.

Forums allow for students to interact with others on the same course.  At the completion of the course, Wine & Spirit IQ will arrange examinations in the same conditions as classroom courses.
