Course fees will be refunded in full if FIRST GROWTH WINE SCHOOL changes a course date or cancels a course if enrollments do not reach the required minimum numbers – notification will
be made in the 7 days prior to the planned start date of the course.


Examination dates are fixed to the course onto which you book and any transfer to an alternative date will incur an administration fee of 50.00 Euro + VAT per student. All transfer requests must
be made in writing or by email christoforos@firstgrowth.eu at least 12 working days before the original examination date.

At the start of all WSET examinations, candidates must supply proof of identity in the form of photographic ID. Failure to do so will result in the student not being permitted to take the Exam.
Special examination condition requirements due to dyslexia or other medical reasons must be notified prior to the start of the course and supported by a doctor’s certificate or similar document.


Students and candidates under the legal minimum age for the retail purchase of alcoholic beverages will NOT be permitted to sample any alcoholic beverages as part of their course.

This is NOT, however, a barrier for successfully completing the qualification.
