You will undertake independent research, gaining additional UCAS points for your university application and developing a range of independent research skills.
During this one year course you will create your project which can be either a specific essay based study or the production of an ‘artefact’ (play, video, book, sculpture, photographic journal). Although this is an independent study project, you will receive support through access to a supervisor and weekly taught sessions which cover a range of study skills such as referencing, research methods and writing techniques. The EPQ is offered as a stand-alone qualification at AS and attracts a potential A grade. This valuable qualification allows you to develop useful skills for either employment or higher level study.
