WSET Level 3 Award in Wines Online Learning

For students unable to attend scheduled lectures, the Independent Wine Education Guild offers online study courses.

The WSET Level 3 Award In Wines provides an in-depth exploration of a wide range of wines.  While there is no prerequisite, successful completion of the WSET Level 2 Award In Wines is recommended, or an equivalent level of wine knowledge.

This qualification is ideal for trade employees working in a supervisory capacity, advising management, answering customer queries and making informed selections of wines in a wide variety of situations. This course is also the next step for the wine enthusiast wishing to build on knowledge gained on WSET Level 2.

The course is based around a 9-week structured online programme with a recommendation of 10 hours study per week to cover the online activities and read the relevant chapters in the textbook. It will be assumed that students have basic computer literacy, internet navigation skills and a good level of English.

The course follows a weekly structure, but it allows the student to work ahead or catch up on the activities and forums. There are no set times to log into the course as there are no live chats or webinars.

The course prepares the student for the qualification and is 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 that guide the student through the key wine regions of the world looking at the factors in the vineyard and winery that influence wine styles.

Students are advised to taste a range of wines during their studies. A list of recommended tasting samples 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).

Policy on changing your exam date to an alternative date.

Please note IWEG's policy on changing your exam date:

When you register for a WSET or WSG course, you are booked to take your exam on a specific date, which is indicated in your Course Schedule. You can view this before registering, and when you register, you will be reminded.

If you decide not to write your exam on the date you are registered for, this is what you must know:

·  For WSET Levels 1 to 3 and WSG courses, you have to ask to change the date at least 15 days before the exam date, by writing to admin@iweg.org.

·  For WSET Level 4 Diploma you have to ask to change the date at least 75 days before the exam date, by writing to admin@iweg.org.

·  You must pick a new exam date within 12 months from the start of your current course.

·  You may change your exam date a maximum of two times during the 12 months. You can choose from any exam dates/re-sit dates listed on the course page of the IWEG website. It is possible that your first choice may not work, if the exam is full.

· Each time you change your exam date, there is a $150 fee.

· After the 12-month period, from the start of your current course, if you still need to sit the exam, you will be charged an exam “re-sit” fee, which varies depending on the course, as well as the $150 fee.

·  The only exception to this policy is in case of a valid and verified personal or family emergency, subject to approval from WSET and WSG.
