WSET Level 3 Award in Wines Course - Manchester - 6 day course
6 Full Days - Sunday 13th, 20th May, 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th June.
This in-depth and intensive course is the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) Level 3 Award in Wines (formerly known as the Advance Certificate) and is intended as vocational training in product knowledge for those employed in the drinks industry who already have a good working understanding of the broad range of alcoholic beverages available, but who need to refine and develop their knowledge.
The course is also increasingly popular amongst those not employed in the drinks industry but who have a serious interest in wine, and wish to study this fascinating subject to a very high level of theoretical knowledge and tasting skill under the guidance of a professional wine tutor.
A crucial distinction between Level 3 and the lower levels of WSET Awards is the analytical tasting component to the exam. You will have to learn, and then demonstrate, the ability to critically assess the flavours in wine and be able to account for them using your knowledge of the key wines of the world.
On successful completion of this course you shall have sufficient knowledge to progress on to the Level 4 Diploma, which runs annually in Manchester.
Please Note: the deadline for booking your place on this course is Friday 13th April 2018, to ensure all students receive their study materials in advance of the start of the course, with time to familiarise themselves with the course specification. Anyone wishing to book any later than this deadline should contact the Wine School before booking to ensure that provision can be made.
Our WSET Level 3 Award in Wines is run over 6 Sunday sessions running from 10.30am-5.30pm.
In addition to the 35 hours of tutored tasting and lecture time it is recommended that all students complete a total of at least 50 hours of private study, around 7 hours preparation before each Sunday session is advised.
A full layout of the course timetable and tasting plan will be issued at the start of the course to help you plan your time.
