Extended Project Qualification at Herefordshire & Ludlow College

Course description

The Extended Project is equivalent to an AS Level. It is a single piece of work and can be undertaken on a topic of your own choosing, which may or may not be linked to your other A Level subjects.

Course content

The Project will help prepare you for degree level studies and employment, by developing your planning, research, critical thinking, presentation and independent learning skills. It will also help you to use your initiative in solving problems and making decisions.

You can choose any topic and you will be required to write a report of 5000 words. Alternatively you create a product, an artefact, and write a 1000 word report on the product and its creation.

The product could be almost anything. The final part of the assessment involves presenting your ideas to a panel of invited guests.

Future opportunities

The skills that students develop through the Extended Project are excellent preparation for university level study.

Students can refer to the Extended Project in their UCAS personal statements and at interview to demonstrate some of the qualities that universities are looking for.

Certain courses at the university will count grades achieved in the extended project towards their entry criteria.
