The KZN School of Wine offers an online distance learning option for the wine enthusiast who wishes to study with more flexibility and for those who wish to gain a WSET qualification but find that it is difficult to attend regular classes.
Studying online offers students the flexibility to fit their studies around their commitments and lifestyle. The online distance learning course is designed to be interactive and engaging by utilising our online portal to allow students to study alongside their peers under the guidance of a WSET tutor. Each week includes a series of online group activities, feedback tests and tasting classes, covering the course in more detail with a greater amount of time to work through it.
The WSET Level 2 course takes place over a 5 week period.
