At WSET School London we strive to create an inclusive environment for all of our students and will make every reasonable attempt to provide support if you have additional access or educational needs as a result of a disability.

Requirements will be assessed on an individual case-by-case basis. To discuss your needs please contact Student Services on +44 (0)20 7089 3841 or email courses@wset.co.uk

It is possible for students with additional needs to apply for reasonable adjustments in order to receive extended examination time. To request reasonable adjustment please contact our Student Services team. 

For the Hearing Impaired

All our classrooms have Hearing Loop technology installed. To discuss any additional needs for deaf or hard-of-hearing students please contact our Student Services team.

Building Accessibility

WSET School London is situated at 39-45 Bermondsey Street. There is level access to the building from the street and every floor is accessible by a lift and stairs. There are two disabled toilets located on the first and second floors which can be accessed by the lift. Other toilets are located between levels and can only be accessed by the staircase. Classrooms are located on the first, second and fifth floors of the building.

If you have mobility needs, in the event of an emergency, you must inform your tutor, who will advise you of evacuation arrangements.

Bursaries

The WSET operates a Bursary Scheme which is designed to help potential WSET students who would otherwise be unable to fund a course at the WSET School. Documentary evidence of financial hardship will need to accompany any applications for funding, and bursaries will be awarded to fund between 25% and 75% of the cost, depending on the degree of financial hardship. Applications for funding under the WSET Bursary Scheme should be submitted by email. All applications for funding under the WSET Bursary Scheme are subject to approval, and at the discretion of the Trustees of WSET.

The WSET also works in collaboration with the International Wine Challenge (IWC) who run the IWC Education Bursary. For successful international applicants, the IWC will contribute towards course fees at their local WSET Approved Programme Provider. Support is available for the WSET Level 3 Award in Wines and Spirits or the WSET Diploma courses. In line with the global vision of both organisations, and with the objective of stimulating diversity and inclusion in education, this bursary is only offered to students who are resident outside the UK.
