IWEG's Fall Semester 2020 Delivery Modes

July 20, 2020

Dear IWEG community,

The health and safety of our students, instructors, partners and staff continues to be our top priority.

With the announcement by the Ontario government that parts of the province are moving to Stage 3 of the reopening plan, we are committed to reopening our classrooms, when we are allowed to do so, by safeguarding everyone’s health and protection. 

Following public health’s guidance to work remotely “as much as possible”, learn more about our course delivery modes for the Fall 2020 semester.

The IWEG team will oversee the safe reopening of the school within the guidelines established by the Government of Ontario and Toronto Public Health. We expect everyone to adhere to all guidelines established for any planned visit to the school in Fall 2020. Please read our Reopening IWEG Safely Plan.


Here's why you should sign up for the WSET Level 4 Diploma in Wines

Alexa MacAlister shares her story

"I enrolled in the WSET Diploma to deepen my wine knowledge and understanding of the global challenges facing the industry I love and work in. So far it has not been easy - you definitely get out what you put into it and that also means if you don't prioritize the course, you won't be successful. Altering one's schedule in order to plan other life activities around the Diploma course has been a real and (sometimes rude) awakening. That being said, I'm so glad I enrolled. The material we've covered in class is fascinating and having in-class instruction by industry professionals who have visited and studied these regions intensely has been very engaging for me. The breadth of wines we've tasted is impressive and tasting alongside other committed students who have different industry and life experiences has refined my technique immensely. As a salesperson it has allowed me to better explain the wines I'm selling as well as evaluate the competitors in market. I'd recommend this course for other students looking to expand their mind and challenge themselves, meet and develop relationships with like-minded wine professionals and become a trusted expert and resource to their peers and company." – Alexa MacAlister, Territory Sales Manager, Andrew Peller Limited
