AQA Baccalaureate and Extended Project Qualification at St Alban's Catholic High School

Course description

Extended Studies incorporates the elements of General Studies, Critical Thinking, the

Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) and the AQA Baccalaureate. This is an overarching

qualification that recognises the academic achievements of students, including their

enrichment activities which occur outside the classroom.

The EPQ is a component of the AQA Bacc but can also be taken as a standalone

AS Level qualification. Students can choose an area of their own research that comes from

their personal interest, a leisure activity, a subject specific project, a career based project

or community based project. The EPQ allows students to develop into independent

learners, applying research, problem solving and analytical skills to something that they

are passionate about; expertise that universities love.
