Booking Policy


Telephone: 0203 845 0503


Full payment must accompany the booking form – we do not accept provisional bookings

and places will only be confirmed once payment is received.

Bookings will only be accepted on valid forms with signed/agreed student declaration and the required authorization for invoice request bookings for account holders.

For bookings for overseas students e-books will be allocated rather than physical copies there will be an extra charge to cover the postage of the certificates once the course has been succesfully completed. 

Cancellations of confirmed places are accepted up to 12 working days prior to the start of

the course. An administration fee of £35.00 will be deducted and the remainder of the course

fee refunded to the payee.

Transfers of a confirmed booking either to another course or applicant can be made up to

12-working days before the course start date on payment of a £35.00 admin fee + the cost

of any additional study materials which may be applicable.


Transfers cannot be carried forward to the next academic year.

If a confirmed course booking is cancelled within twelve working days prior to the start of the course, or after the start of the course, no refund or transfer of the course fees will be made.

Examination dates are fixed to the course onto which you book and any transfer to an

alternative date will incur an administration fee of £35.00

*All transfer requests must be made in writing or by email at least 12-working days before the original examination date. Transfer requests made within 12-working days of the examination date will incur the admin fee and cost of examination paper which will have been ordered via WSET Awards.

Course fees will be refunded in full (minus the costs of any materials dispatched) if the TheDrinkSchool cancels a course if enrolments do not reach the required minimum numbers – notification will be made in the 12-working days prior to the planned start date of the course.

Where possible your booking will be transferred to the next available date.

Please note *all transfers are subject to availability on alternative course/examination dates.
