Extended Project Qualification

The Level 3 Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) allows you to independently investigate, in depth a topic of your choice.

The EPQ usually takes a few months to complete and is worth the equivalent of an AS-level. Highly regarded by many universities and employers, it shows you have interest, determination, initiative and a high level of independent study skills.

The qualification epitomises the skills and qualities both Newman College and universities want a student to embody as an able, committed independent learner.

“The EPQ allowed me to develop my research and analytical skills. It also gave me the opportunity to discover areas of medicine that fascinated me.” (Josh)
