To help you make the most of your time with WSET School London, we’re delighted to be working with our industry partners and neighbours to offer you a carefully selected range of exclusive discounts. Check this page regularly to make you have the most up-to-date discount information. 

Please note: to claim some of these discounts (local food and drink offers, and some winery/distillery tours) you typically need to show a physical Student Deals Card valid for the current academic year. For classroom course students, this is issued on the first day of your course. For online students, this can be picked up by visiting our reception and providing your course confirmation.

Here’s an overview of what’s currently on offer!
