For more details about the Diploma course content, please see the WSET Level 4 Diploma in Wines course page. 

Continuous delivery

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.

Evening courses

The evening course format has been designed for those who are unable to study in the daytime due to work or family commitments. It's a popular choice for wine enthusiasts as well as trade professionals with demanding daytime jobs. As the classroom time is more spread out, this is the least intensive way to study for the Diploma - your skills are honed gradually over time and it allows plenty of time for preparation and study between classes.
