The course is based around a 9-week structured online programme with a recommendation of 10 hours study per week to cover the online activities and read the relevant chapters in the textbook. There is also a 1 day tasting tutorial. The course follows a weekly structure, but it 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.
It will be assumed that students have basic computer literacy, internet navigation skills and good level of English.
Students are guided by a WSET educator. They can contact the educator any time for the duration of the scheduled course, should they have any questions. Each week includes a series of independent and/or group activities. Students are advised to taste a range of wines during their studies. A list of recommended tasting samples can be found in the specification. Students can post their tasting notes in the Online Classroom for review by the educator.
