Extended Project Qualification

In addition to A Level and BTEC courses there will be the opportunity for students to participate in the EPQ. The EPQ requires students to create a single piece of work, requiring a high degree of planning, preparation and autonomous working. The projects that students complete will differ by subject, but all will require persistence over time and research skills to explore a subject independently in real depth. An increasing number of universities are including the EPQ in their offers to students.
