WSET Online

Online courses: how do they work?

Wine Courses Barcelona offers students who cannot attend classroom courses the option to study wines and spirits certifications online with WSET London. While your educator will be based there, bookings will be made and exams taken with Wine Courses Barcelona. 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 their educator. 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. Course details can be found below, with further information on the WSET on this page. Please see FAQs below, or contact us if you have any concerns or questions.
