For those candidates who cannot attend class or prefer to study at home, the American Wine School offers WSET Level 1, 2, 3 and 4 as at-home, self-study programs via WSET’s Online Global Classroom. The Global Classroom option gives candidates who cannot attend class, another option for participating. The price includes the study materials, exam fee, and online learning fees. Global Classrooms do not have instructor-led lectures. Instead, the course utilizes videos, quizzes, and activities to deliver content and assess knowledge throughout the course.

Each course has specific exam dates. Once you sign up for the course, you will automatically be signed up for the exam date associated with the course.

COVID-19 UPDATE: As of June 1, 2020 WSET will conduct Level 1 & Level 2 exams ONLINE. While in-person exams are still available, WSET will now offer online exams making it possible to take the exams from the comfort of your own home.

Online Learning

The WSET London Wine & Spirit School offers an online distance learning option for the wine enthusiast who wishes to study for pleasure or gain a WSET qualification, but find that it is difficult to attend regular classes at the School.

Studying online offers students the flexibility to fit their studies around their commitments and lifestyle.  Each of the  qualification course is based around a structured week-by-week programme of activities and you will be guided on the number of hours of study needed for each week.  However, the courses have no fixed study times so you will be able to plan your weekly studies to suit your personal lifestyle.

All online qualification courses are designed to be interactive and make learning more accessible and engaging.  The courses utilize social media to allow students to study alongside their peers under the guidance of a WSET tutor.
