The course will be based around a 4-week, 7 module online learning programme with educator support available for this time. The course modules should be followed in order, but students are free to complete the modules at their own pace during this 4- week window. The course material should take about 6 hours in total to complete, plus revision time.
Regular access and participation in the course online activities is essential for this mode of study while course is running. You will have access to the platform to review for a full year after start date.
The course also includes a Zoom Session with Statera. This session will be to review, discuss, and taste along if you wish. They are optional and the sessions are not recorded. Zoom Date will be announced at course start date.
The course prepares the student for our qualifications and they are guided by a WSET educator. The student can contact the educator any time for the duration of the scheduled course, should they have any questions. Each module includes a series of independent activities to help students understand sake production and different styles of sake.
Students should be advised to taste a range of sakes during their studies. All the required sakes for the course can be found the Specification. Students can post their tasting notes in the Online Classroom for review by the educator.
