Traditional / In-person Class Delivery
"In-person" or "Traditional" is defined as classes that are held in the classroom and under a traditional classroom setting. The minimum attendance to run a session is 8 students. If this minimum is not met - New England Wine Academy reserves the right to cancel or postpone the session and refund all tuition payments.
Hybrid Class Delivery
"Hybrid" is defined as classes that are held over a virtual meeting platform, such as Zoom, by a designated instructor. These courses will have a specific start and end dates, with set times for the delivery of class sessions. Generally speaking, there are no limits to student attendance, but New England Wine Academy does reserve the right to cancel or postpone a course if at least a minimum attendance is not met.
Online Class Delivery
"Online" is defined as classes that are administered via remote learning platforms, and are generally held with no set class times or live instructor. WSET Online classes are conducted using the Canvas platform, and there is no minimum student level. Students book through New England Wine Academy, follow the online sessions at their own pace, and take their exam with New England Wine Academy on the assigned dates. There is a WSET approved instructor assigned to each session, and this instructor will give feedback on quizzes, tasting notes, etc.
WSET is now offering level 1 and level 2 exams with the option to take exams online, rather than in-person. When you check out for a class enrollment, you will be asked to make a selection as to the exam setting you wish to pursue. There is a small additional charge for the remote invigilation process as there is an additional third-party system used for control and validation purposes.
Please follow this link to review the Candidate Remote Invigilation document prior to making a final decision.
Although it is highly recommended that candidates take their exams on the assigned course date, from time to time life happens. Candidates do have up to 1 year from the course date to complete their exams - either in-person or remotely.
