3. Choosing a course provider
WSET courses are offered by a global network of third-party providers called "Approved Programme Providers" or "APPs" for short.
All APPs undergo a rigorous approval and monitoring process to ensure they meet the high standards expected, both to teach WSET qualifications and to administer exams in accordance with WSET policy.
While we guarantee that APPs meet WSET quality criteria it is important that you, the student, choose the APP that is right for you.
All APPs are happy to advise you without obligation, so you should feel free to contact and compare providers and ask questions to ensure they match your study needs. You may want to consider factors such as course availability and what delivery options are offered such as weekend, evening or intensive courses.
Please note that course fees will vary between APPs, depending on the delivery of the course (classroom or online learning) and the course location, which can impact the cost of tasting samples. APPs may also include additional add-ons such as meals and accommodation or vineyard and distillery visits which can affect the final course price.
4. Finding a course provider
To find your nearest course provider(s) use the Where to Study directory and select the qualification and location where you wish to study. Be aware that not all APPs offer the full range of WSET qualifications.
This directory lists all the APPs who are open to the public. Some APPs may also operate at additional locations which are not included on this page. We recommend contacting the APP directly for their full list of courses and location availability.
While there are more than 750 course providers in over 75 countries, regretfully not all locations will have a WSET course provider. However new providers are approved regularly and availability of WSET courses continues to grow.
