Great Diploma Results

Our recent students (June, 2011 and January, 2012 exams) continued our excellent performances on the WSET Diploma Unit 3 (Light Wines) exam. Fifteen of 21 students passed the theory portion and 19 of 21 passed the tasting portion. This is far above the international pass rate (approximately 50%) for this difficult, day-long exam.

Congratulations to our students and to our Unit 3 instructors, whose skillful use of two-way video has enabled our students from all over the country to do as well as our local students.
