The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) is a great opportunity for young people to pursue an area of special interest and take their studies to a deeper level, preparing them for the kind of independent learning expected in higher education.

Getting started

The project can be individual or group work, and can be an artefact, a dissertation, an investigation or a performance.

Students considering an EPQ need to be self-motivated, well organised and have a passion for their chosen subject.

The EPQ is worth half an A Level and carries up to 28 UCAS points.

Students wishing to progress on to an EPQ in their second year should normally have achieved 3 grade Bs at AS Level.
