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.
