Extended Project Qualification

EPQ is an extra qualification, equivalent to half an A level and worth UCAS points. The EPQ is highly valued by University Admissions staff, who regard it as an excellent preparation for study at university.

+ Course details and future career paths

The EPQ is an independent research project on a topic of your choice which must be an extension of your A-level study. You will produce either a 5000 word essay or an artefact supported by a 1500 word report.

You will be taught research skills and provided with supervision to guide you through the research process. The EPQ attracts UCAS points up to A* and is highly regarded by Russell Group Universities and providers of Higher Level Apprenticeships.

+ Progression

The extended project is very popular with universities and can in some cases reduce a student’s UCAS offer. It improves independent work and helps students with organisation and time management. It gives you a chance to select an area of interest to work on and therefore keeps you motivated.
