Extended Project Qualification
The EPQ allows each student to embark on a largely self-directed and self-motivated project. Students must choose a topic, plan, research and develop their idea and decide on their finished product.
Universities value the skills and commitment to independent learning from students who undertake an EPQ.
You are able to develop your intellectual curiosity on a favourite topic in a structured and supported way.
The project is something you can add to your personal statement for universities or higher apprenticeships and refer to the skill sets or research topic during interview discussions.
