This is a highly valued qualification by universities and employers alike. The project is a combination of a dissertation, a log book and a presentation. The topic you study is one of your choosing and you are coached in how to reference your work, how to research for information, how to record your notes and the best way to do a presentation. See Mrs Prichard for more details.

Here are some statements from Universities about the Extended Project:

From now on, all applicants (including those in the current 2012-13 cycle) for our Humanities courses (excluding Music), and Human and Social Science courses (excluding Maths) undertaking EPQ will be made an alternative offer alongside our traditional offer. The alternative offer will be one grade reduced form our traditional offer in exchange for an A in the EPQ. For example, History, whose traditional offer is AAB will make an alternative offer of ABB. It is our hope that this will send out a clear message to students that we value the EPQ, and appreciate the hard work that goes into completing one. We also hope that this will serve to encourage more students to undertake the EPQ, reduce the number that drop out once university offers come in, and also result in more EPQ students applying to us. We have an increasingly compelling evidence base that students who did well at the EPQ settle in well to their undergraduate study at a research-intensive university like ours, and so are keen to see more them in our lecture theatres and seminar rooms. University of Southampton

Qualifications taken in addition to your main exams, such as the Extended Project, will improve your application by enabling you to develop study skills that will be useful in higher education. Although we do not usually make offers based on such qualifications, we encourage applicants to take them and note them on their application form.University of Birmingham

The University is supportive of the requirement to undertake an Extended Project … It is expected that some admissions tutors may make two alternative offers to those offering this qualification, one of which involves success in the Extended Project (for example either AAA at A Level or AAB at A Level plus Extended Project). University of Bristol

We welcome the introduction of the Extended Project and would encourage you to undertake one as it will help you develop independent study and research skills and ease the transition from school/college to higher education. Completion of an Extended Project will not, however, be a requirement of any offer made. University of Cambridge
