ATTENTION. Only individuals aged over 18 years old are eligible to apply.

The students who are located in Armenia and are attending classes in-person, in addition to the classroom lessons, have an opportunity to gain knowledge and receive training in EVN Wine Academy’s winery, the wine laboratory, and professional wine-tasting hall. Students who are joining the academic program online will have full access to live classes and will be able to interact with teachers and peer students simulating a true classroom experience. This outstanding professional program is offered jointly by EVN Wine Academy (Armenia) and Geisenheim University (Germany).

Program duration: 18 months. The program starts in November each year. We have a year-round rolling admission. The admission deadline for November 2021 cohort is Friday, October 15, 2021, at 6 PM Yerevan time (+4 GMT).

Teaching language: English.

Load: 4 classes a week. The duration of each class is 2.5 hours, 6.30 PM – 9.00 PM (Yerevan, Armenia time +4 GMT).

Format: Simultaneously online and in-person. The classes are conducted in the video-conferencing-equipped classrooms which enables hybrid education. We normally have around 15 students in the classroom and more students joining online. The video-conferencing equipment is creating a true classroom education experience. Students joining online can interact with the instructor and the peer students, see the presentation materials, and the teachers’ notes on the whiteboard.

Internship. Students residing in Armenia are required to pass a 4-week internship in the September-October period. We connect students with specific wineries to complete their hands-on internships. Students are free to express their own preferences per location. Students not residing in Armenia will need to arrange their internship on their own and submit to EVN Wine Academy proof of their internship (normally an official letter sent by the winery to EVN Wine Academy administration is sufficient).

Certification: Upon graduation, students who took all classes at EVN Wine Academy’s location receive a joint certificate from EVN Wine Academy and the Geisenheim University. Students who joined the academic program online, receive a certificate from EVN Wine Academy only. The graduation certificates are shipped globally via a courier service.
