WSET Level 2 Award in Wines & Spirits

WSET Courses > WSET Level 2 Award in Wines & Spirits

The WSET Level 2 gives a broad overview of the world of wines and spirits. There are eleven individual units taught over three days; each class focuses on specific subjects and always includes the opportunity to taste related wines. Upon completion of classes on the third day, students are given time to revise prior to sitting a one hour, 50 question multiple choice closed book exam. The completed exam papers are sent back to the WSET in London for marking and grading.

It is recommended that students put in at least 12 hours of their own private study prior to sitting the exam. NOTE: Students should attend all three course days.

Please note : every course has a confirmed examination date. Students who decide to postpone or defer their examination will be required to pay an additional fee.
