Extended Project at Haggerston School

Course description

The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) is a Level 3 course which is taken alongside A-levels. You’ll be required to complete a project based on a research topic of your choice. It can be related to a subject outside of your current areas of study or a topic that will help with the transition into higher education or the world of work. The project can be in the form of a written dissertation, artefact such as a model or DVD, development of a showcase performance or an investigation/field study into the chosen topic.

The Edexcel Extended Project qualification carries UCAS points, which can be used in your university applications.

Course content

Working within a small group, you will meet your teacher for 1 hour a week to develop relevant research skills, receive guidance and discuss your progress. However, this is a piece of independent research, so you will also need to do extended work on your own. You are required to:

  •  choose a topic to study, and draft a title
  •  complete a production log to document the project process
  •  plan, research, evaluate and carry out the project
  •  prepare and deliver a presentation on the outcome.

In essence the work which you will be doing will give you a flavour of the type of work, skills and selfmotivation expected of you at university level.

Entry requirements

6 GCSEs at grade A*-C including a C grade in English and at least two B grades
