How do you want to study?
The WSET are currently working on computer based exams for Levels 1 & 2 students. We will post more information when we have it available. In the meantime, you will still be able to study. We will post student packs to you for distance learning.
To minimise unnecessary trips during control measures, student packs will be dispatched once per week on Monday. They are valuable, and sent by signed for delivery. Normally these take 3 days to arrive once sent.

Which level do you want to study?
John Callow DipWSET FWS SWS
After university, I worked in the drinks industry for some years. My real passion was in helping others choose and buy wine well. I decided to learn as much as possible about the wines and spirits I enjoyed. Over the years I have earned my WSET Diploma, been accepted by The Association of Wine Educators and become both a Certified Sherry, and Sake Educator.
My mission is to for you to gain more enjoyment from your favourite tipple. Whether a student in the trade or a wine enthusiast I want to help you benefit from my experience and knowledge.
I recently completed the WSET Level 2 course and examination with Northern Wine School. It really was an excellent course and was very well run & taught by John. I learnt a lot and got to taste some great wines. Highly recommended! Phil Gregory
