WSET Level 1 qualification courses in wines or spirits are accessible without pre-requisites.


WSET Level 2 qualification in wines or spirits requires basic tasting skills and knowledge of these products. Level 1 is therefore strongly recommended but not compulsory to register.

The WSET Level 3 in wines qualification is accessible directly after the WSET Level 2 in wines or equivalent level. You can contact our team to check the equivalences.
