« Back to IWEG Online Learning | View Available Classes
The course is based around a five-week, six-module online programme with a recommendation of six hours study per week to cover the online activities and read the relevant chapters in the
textbook. The course modules should be followed in sequential order during this five-week window. Regular access and participation in the course online activities is essential for this mode of study.

The course prepares the student for our qualification 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 module includes a series of independent activities to help students understand the key styles of
spirits and how they are made.

Students should be advised to taste a range of spirits during their studies. A list of recommended tasting samples can be found in the specification. Please note that students are responsible for purchasing their own spirits samples and the cost of these is not included in the course fee. It is not mandatory to taste spirits as no tasting assessment is included in the examination to obtain the certificate. Students can post their tasting notes in the Online
Classroom for review by the educator.
