The Level 4 Diploma in Wines
WSET's flagship Diploma will arm you with specialist-level understanding of the world of wine. Diploma graduates are recognised throughout the world as authoritative wine experts. The course not only develops advanced product knowledge but will also hone your research and analysis abilities, skills which will continue to be hugely valuable to you in the future whether you're in the trade or a serious enthusiast.
For more details about the Diploma course content, please see the WSET Level 4 Diploma in Wines course page.
These study options allow you to enrol on one single course that covers all six units of the Diploma. Only one enrolment is required for the whole course and you will learn alongside the same classmates throughout.
The evening course format has been designed for those who are unable to study in the daytime due to work or family commitments. It's a popular choice for wine enthusiasts as well as trade professionals with demanding daytime jobs. As the classroom time is more spread out, this is the least intensive way to study for the Diploma - your skills are honed gradually over time and it allows plenty of time for preparation and study between classes.
