Do I have to start with WSET Level 1?

You can start immediately at a higher level if you meet the following conditions:

  • Straight to WSET Level 2 if you can already name and distinguish the different types and styles of wines.
  • Direct entry to WSET Level 3 if you have already “successfully” completed another “certified” intermediate course in which the different classic grape varieties were discussed.
    It is assumed that you have a good knowledge of WSET Level 2. Therefore, we recommend you purchase the WSET Level 2 book to read and prepare yourself before you start the WSET Level 3 course.
  • Direct progression to WSET Level 4 is NOT possible. You must be in possession of the WSET Level 3 certificate.
