All WSET courses take an international approach to wine that is supported by a practical and objective focus that avoids poetry and personal opinions. All WSET degrees require time for individual study, which becomes more intense as levels progress. All levels require a test to obtain the corresponding qualifications. Through their enrollment in The Wine Studio, our students are automatically registered with the WSET headquarters in London, from where they are sent their exams, which are then returned to the London office for correction. If you need more information, we recommend reading the specifications of each level.
