4 week course

Course Code: O1W19010APP

The Level I class lasts 4 weeks. The course will be based around a 4-week, 7 module online learning program with educator support available for this time. The course modules should be followed in order, but students are free to complete the modules at their own pace during this 4-week window. The course material should take about 6 hours in total to complete, plus revision time.

The course prepares the student for our qualifications 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 week includes a series of independent and/or group activities to help students understand the differences between grape varieties and types and styles of wine.

All study materials are included in the online course.

Regular access and participation in the course online activities is essential for this mode of study.

Students are advised to taste a range of wines during their studies. All the required wines for the course can be found in the online Equipment List. Any additional wines can be found in the Specification. Students can post their tasting notes in the Online Classroom for review by the educator.

Students will require access to a computer (recommended) and/or HTML5 compatible mobile or tablet with the following minimum requirements: Internet Explorer 10, Firefox 25.0, Safari 6, Chrome 30.0 or other HTML5 compatible; web browser with Javascript and cookies** enabled; Adobe Reader XI or equivalent; Internet access (broadband recommended)

Students are involved in weekly assignments. There is a group tasting area, multiple choice practice tests and videos. A WSET Educator guides students through each section. Students will receive website login credentials from the WSET several days before the start of the course. After the course date ends, students will still have access for 1 year. After the course date ends, the material becomes read only and students can no longer post in the activities.

Study materials will be mailed to students 5-7 days before the course start date via USPS Priority Mail.
