Extended Project Qualifications
The Extended Project Qualification is a free standing qualification which is highly valued by universities as it demonstrates your skills in independent learning, academic writing and carrying out an extended research project. It is worth up to 28 UCAS points - equivalent to half an A Level. The EPQ provides you with the opportunity to develop an individual research paper on a subject of your choice with one-to-one support from a member of staff. You can explore an aspect of a subject you are studying, choose a topic in which you have a personal interest, complete a project about an issue that concerns you or create an artefact such as a piece of art, design, music, performance, or an event.
