The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) enables you to choose an area of interest, most probably related to one or more of your A level courses and/or your future studies, and to produce a project based on this. Projects may take the form of a dissertation, an investigation/field study, a performance or an artefact. The major emphasis is on the process behind the project.
The EPQ is well regarded by universities as it provides an opportunity to learn relevant new skills and to demonstrate the ability to undertake research. You will need to be highly motivated and committed to undertake the degree of independent learning required.
