The Study Programme

Becoming a Master of Wine is internationally recognised as the pinnacle of professional achievement in the world of wine. The Institute's study programme is primarily aimed at wine trade professionals and prepares candidates for the Master of Wine Examination.

The videos in this section were recorded during a master class for prospective students in London in May 2010 and provide an overview of the Institute, its work and what is involved in studying for the Master of Wine. They can also be downloaded as MP3 audio files.
