ABOUT WSET

The Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) was founded in 1969 in London England to promote, provide and develop high quality education and training in wines, spirits and other alcoholic beverages for those already in or intending to join the trade, and enthusiastic consumers throughout the world. Since it's inception, WSET has grown into the foremost international body in the field of wines and spirits education. Currently, the program is available in over 50 countries in 13 languages and teaches an astonishing 24,000 students every year.

In addition to courses for those in the 'trade', there is an increasing number of 'consumers', or enthusiasts, who attend courses.  They may attend a course because of a wish to gain the merit of passing the course(s) or simply a desire to enhance their knowledge of the ever-increasing variety of wines and spirits being produced in the world today.

The WSET works through a network of Approved Program Providers around the world.  These external Providers are rigorously checked to ensure that they deliver the high standard of teaching required to enable students to pass their WSET courses.

Whatever your level of interest, you will find it at the Wine & Spirit Education Trust, and we look forward to welcoming you onto one of our programs.

WSET qualifications are part of the UK qualifications framework, and the education courses leading to WSET qualifications are an invaluable source of information for students to enhance their knowledge of wines and spirits. WSET qualifications are not a guarantee of employment or career progression, nor do they form part of any regulated qualifications framework outside UK.
