What is an EPQ?

The Extended Project Qualification, or EPQ, is an independent research project that allows students to delve deeper into a subject that interests them. It is a qualification that is highly regarded by leading UK universities and is often seen as a way for students to stand out in their university applications.

EPQs are typically completed by students in their final year of secondary school and are worth up to 28 UCAS points, but many students also undertake the EPQ with us early, to free up time in their final year to focus on their examinations. This means that the EPQ can be used to meet UCAS Tariff requirements for entry into top universities - and is highly recommended by institutions such as Oxford, Cambridge, and Imperial. These universities all describe the EPQ as ‘of immense value’, and it can be a great way to show your passion and dedication to a specific subject.

EPQ Benefits

  • One of the main benefits of the EPQ is that it allows students to develop research and academic skills that are highly valued by universities. The EPQ is a chance for truly dedicated students to achieve an extra qualification that can help boost their chances of success in applying to top universities.

  • Avernus Education offers a comprehensive EPQ support programme that is tailored to the individual needs of each student. Our expert Advisors and tutors, who are all from top UK universities and schools, provide guidance and support throughout the entire process, from selecting a topic and conducting research, to writing the final dissertation and preparing for the oral presentation.

  • We also offer a full EPQ programme for students whose schools do not offer the EPQ. This includes 25 hours of tuition per week, supervised study, knowledge enhancement, research skills, writing clinics and the marking of the completed assignment.

  • Our holistic approach to education means that we not only help students with their academic enrichment but also with their holistic personal and pastoral development. We work closely with students and their parents/guardians to ensure that the EPQ is a positive and rewarding experience that helps students achieve their goals and aspirations.
