The EPQ is a stand-alone qualification that allows students to extend and develop the transferable skills required for their future. The project they undertake allows students to research an area of interest in depth that takes them above the syllabi they study at A-level. The process leads to the improved project management and organisation alongside developing research and communication skills. Students who choose to complete the EPQ are always very proud of the work they produce.
The qualification is very popular with universities, and often leads to lower offers being made for undergraduate entry.
