Extended Project Qualification

Student studying online

The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) is designed to develop students’ critical, reflective, problem-solving and independent learning skills, and supports students with the transition to higher education or the world of work. The EPQ is a unique study programme for which the learning material is entirely student selected and developed.

The student selects a topic in which they have a particular interest or passion, which will develop their skills, knowledge and understanding. It could be an in-depth review of a historical issue or the creation of a website. Students are assessed on their ability to plan, manage, complete and review their project.
