Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)
Level 3, A-Level
Duration: One Year Course
The Extended Project Qualification is an opportunity for you to develop independent research skills, presentation and essay writing skills.
You will undertake a 5,000 word project on a topic of your choosing and you can approach this in a number of different ways; you could produce a research-based report, or make something more creative.
There will be guidance from tutors but you undertake your Extended Project Qualification independently.
How Will I Be Taught and Assessed?
You will be required to undertake a certain level of independent learning, though you will also be given study skills lessons and regular meetings with a supervisor.The project itself will be undertaken outside of the classroom. The final 5,000 word project is assessed, including your accompanying log book and assessment of your final presentation. There is no exam.
Why Should I Choose Seevic College?
A trip to the University of Hertfordshire is available for students interested in the EPQ; experts and students who have previously completed the qualification will work with you to formulate potential project ideas and give support.
What Could I Do Next?
The course is designed specifically to help you develop the skills necessary to enter Higher Education and employment.
