About the course
Gain an extensive understanding of wines through a 9-week online study programme that is flexible to work around your existing commitments. The Level 3 Award in Wines Online covers the same syllabus as the classroom course, but through an Online Classroom which allows you to study alongside your peers under the guidance of an educator. Please note that the exam is completed in person and not online.
This course is designed to develop your ability to describe wine accurately and account in detail for the style, quality and price of wines.
As you work through the course you will be asked to share your learning experience with the rest of the course group, looking in detail at the influences that affect each wine style and sharing tasting notes. Tasting is an essential part of studying for this course, and you will need to taste a minimum of 12 wines (not provided, but you will be given guidance on the styles to taste).
Do I need any prior knowledge?
This course is open to students who have passed the Level 2 Award in Wines and Spirits. If you do not hold the Level 2 Award in Wines and Spirits, but have obtained the relevant knowledge and experience, you are eligible to gain entry through successful completion of an online entry test.
The course is delivered online and in English therefore basic computer literacy, internet navigation skills and a good level of English are required.
