Frequently asked questions

In principle, we will have the books ready for you at the start of the first lesson. However, we can imagine for WSET Levels 2, 3 and French Wine Scholar that you might want to start reading in advance. When you send us an email, we will prepare the books for you at our wine bar Paskamer in the Lutmastraat 132. Paskamer is open 7 days a week from 4 p.m.

There is a number on your gift voucher. Send us an email with this number. Also clearly indicate which course you want to follow and with which start date. We will contact you and make everything in order!

When it concerns a WSET Level 2 or 3 course; let us know by e-mail as soon as possible if you have to miss a lesson. We can give you absolutely no guarantees, but if it is possible to offer you a place in another group, we will certainly do so. This is of course subject to availability. Due to the short duration of the course, this is not possible at a WSET Level 1 course.

We request the final exams 3 weeks in advance. Until then, postponing an exam is possible free of charge. After this moment it is no longer possible to change the exam date and we will be forced to charge the costs of a re-exam.

Unfortunately, WSET does not allow us to share these slides.

It is officially allowed to go directly to WSET level 3. However, we are cautious about this because the level of WSET level 3 is still regularly underestimated. It is really advanced level. Please contact us if you are considering this. Wouter is happy to talk to you and will advise you about the feasibility for you.
