How do I register for a WSET exam?

For each WSET course (L1, L2, L3) you apply for, a “possible” exam date is given.
This is the first possible date that you can attend.

ATTENTION, you are not automatically registered for the exam. You will receive a link after the start of the course to register for the date/location of your choice. If the group is full, this will also be mentioned on the overview.

Always check your calendar first, also with your family members and employer, because once you have registered you cannot change this date free of charge.

It is the course participant’s own responsibility to arrange this exam registration in time.

Once we have registered with WSET London (one month before the exam), you cannot move or cancel. If you are ill on the day of the exam, you can only submit a request for relocation to a later date with a doctor’s certificate.

A NO SHOW, without a doctor’s certificate, means that you will have to pay for the exam again if you still wish to participate at a later date.

Under no circumstances can anyone take a WSET exam without having completed a course. If you have followed the course with another APP, you can take the exam at WineWise upon presentation of proof of participation (
