EPQ – Extended Project Qualification
Students who are intending to get places at the top universities or on the most competitive courses are encouraged to do the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) as an additional qualification.
The qualification is research-based and so gives students the opportunity to study, in-depth, an area of specific interest to them. It also means that they have an individual area of interest that they can talk about at interview, which in turn, helps differentiate them from other students.
Course Specific Trips & Visits
Students will have the opportunity to take part in research workshops with the University of Southampton, both before starting their EPQ and once it is completed.
Most students who sign up to the EPQ do so to improve their chances of getting into the best universities or onto the most competitive courses. It gives students the opportunity to develop all sorts of skills – most obviously their research and presentations skills, since students are required to make a presentation on their research. These skills are essential for most university courses, and are of interest to many employers.
Entry Requirements & Assessment
Students will be invited onto the course at the end of the Lower Sixth.
The exam board for The Extended Project Qualification is Pearson Edexcel
