WSET announce highest ever number of diploma graduates

Published:  10 September, 2009

The Wine & Spirit Education Trust WSET, has announced the highest number of diploma graduates in its 40 year history.

Results of the diploma reveal that all 359 students completed all units in the academic year 08/09.

Chief executive Ian Harris said: "It is a testament to the quality of teaching in all the 22 centres offering the WSET Diploma, in 17 different countries, that we have achieved the figure of 359 graduates. Of this figure, just over half studied in markets outside UK, reflecting the international growth of WSET, and the graduate list includes students from 28 countries".

"In these uncertain times, it is very encouraging to see such a high number of individuals and companies continuing to invest in education in general, and WSET qualification in particular, and I congratulate all those who have achieved success in all WSET qualifications in the past year."

The largest centre offering the WSET Diploma is the Wine & Spirit Education Trust's London Wine & Spirit School in Bermondsey Street, which also runs the diploma programmes in Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh.
