Study for the industry-leading WSET Diploma on Saturdays, ideal for those who prefer to attend classes at the weekend.
33 Saturdays, split into four blocks
The Level 4 Diploma in Wines
WSET's flagship Diploma will arm you with specialist-level understanding of the world of wine. Diploma graduates are recognised throughout the world as authoritative wine experts. The course not only develops advanced product knowledge but will also hone your research and analysis abilities, skills which will continue to be hugely valuable to you in the future whether you're in the trade or a serious enthusiast.
For more details about the Diploma course content, please see the WSET Level 4 Diploma in Wines course page.
These study options allow you to enrol on one single course that covers all six units of the Diploma. Only one enrolment is required for the whole course and you will learn alongside the same classmates throughout.
Ideal for those who prefer to attend classes at the weekend. Delivered between 10:00am-2:30pm, you’ll still get most of the weekend to yourself. This format makes it possible to complete the Diploma in just over a year, but to do so successfully it is important that you are able to dedicate a great deal of hours towards classroom and private study during this time.
