Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) at Bellerive FCJ Catholic College

Course description

For many students, this means identifying a topic that they have already touched on in their AS studies, but would like to explore further. EPQ projects can include:

* An extended report (5000 word) - an essay or investigation

* A piece of creative writing

* A film

* Artwork

* Design of a product or article of clothing

* Website design

* Another agreed format

The project and topic is often, but not exclusively, one that relates to an area of study the student would like to pursue at university.

The EPQ is a good way to demonstrate not only that you have excellent independent study skills, but that you are seriously interested and committed to an area of study.

Although the EPQ is absolutely not essential for a successful UCAS application, many universities have indicated that they will view the EPQ favourably.
