The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) is an opportunity for Sixth Form students to really engage with an idea that they are passionate about which may extend on from one of their chosen A Level subjects or may simply be something completely different that has sparked their interest.
The EPQ allows students to carry out an independent research project alongside support from a supervisor and a taught programme of skills to help them achieve the successful completion of their project.
The project can either be in the form of a written report (essay) of 5,000 words or the production of an artefact (with a 1,000 word accompanying report). Students are also required to complete a Production Log and deliver a presentation to an invited audience.
Here are some ideas of topics that might be developed into an EPQ:
