Extended Project Qualification


Many students take up the opportunity of an EPQ to demonstrate their interest in a topic outside the A level syllabus and one that they are really interested in researching.

The EPQ is equivalent to half an A level and requires students to produce a single piece of work of their own choosing, showing evidence of planning, preparation, research and working independently. Students are guided and supported by a facilitating tutor. 

As the EPQ demonstrates a clear ability to work independently and depth of interest in a topic, it is valued by universities and employers.
