Online courses: how do they work?
Due to the current situation with regards Covid-19, Wine Courses Barcelona will now be offering online versions of the WSET Levels 1 and 2 in Wines. From the start date of the course, students will have one year of access to the online classroom and a set number of weeks of educator support from our head educator, Sharon Grundy. The online platform is designed and administered by the Wine and Spirits Education Trust, and will clearly guide you through modules, activities and feedback exercises. You will also have one year in which to complete your exam. The exam will be taken in person at our central Barcelona location.
