This 5 week specialized course includes 6 hours of study per week. However the course has no fixed study times - this course utilises on-line resources to allow students to study alongside their peers under the guidance of a WSET tutor.  Each week includes a series of online activities, often based around group discussion, with an online tutor allocated to guide the students' studies. A timed feedback test is provided at the end of each week for students to practice for the exam and assess their understanding of that week's topics. Group tasting activities are also provided to familiarise students with the Systematic Approach to Tasting specific to spirits.
