Academic Enrichment

EPQ

All students will have the opportunity to enter for the AQA Extended Project Qualification (equivalent to 70 UCAS points)

The project allows you to choose an area of interest, one usually related to your studies, to broaden and deepen your understanding above and beyond what you do in the classroom.

You carry out the project which may include a written report or artefact then research, collate data, write an evaluation and do a final presentation independently but with the support of a tutor who will facilitate and guide you. Universities support the Extended Project Qualification because they want students who are capable of independent study, a skill which they feel students are lacking in when arriving at university.
