The Extended Project Qualification, or EPQ, is an extra qualification that is worth half an A Level. It is highly regarded by university admissions staff, as it often viewed as excellent preparation for your university studies.
It is a qualification which enhances your independent study skills and encourages personal development, which is typical of university studies.
The EPQ enables you to provide evidence of your study skills, including:
- Independent learning
- Extended academic writing
These skills are also transferable, which means that you can use them when entering your chosen profession. In other words, the EPQ helps you to open doors for future study or the world of employment.
