Student deals card

To help you make the most of your time at WSET School London, we’re delighted to be working with our industry partners and neighbours to offer you a carefully selected range of exclusive discounts.

A few things to think about before using your card:

  • Keep it safe - we can replace a damaged card but we may not be able to replace a lost or stolen card
  • Check this page regularly to make you have the most up-to-date discount information
  • Check the 'valid until' date on your card hasn't passed before attempting to claim the below discounts - they're time sensitive

Here’s an overview of what’s currently on offer! 

Local food and drink

We’re very lucky to be located in one of the most exciting areas in London for quality, independent food and drink. You have plenty of choice when deciding where to go for lunch, or where to enjoy a glass of something after class.

A selection of local bars, cafes and restaurants within a short walk of the School offer exclusive discounts when you wave your Student Deals Card.

Below we've detailed the discounts available, and offered a recommendation from our team to get you started if you're not sure what to go for.

20% off tours of the Bermondsey Distillery (Jensen's Gin)
