The EPQ offers students the chance to research their own area of academic interest and to write it up as a dissertation, with the help of a Coordinator, Mr McCann.
Many leading academic centres have started the EPQ and we are delighted to be able to offer this opportunity to a number of students from September 2012. Leading universities and companies have been very supportive of EPQ, with many stating how much they value the skills it develops, and even stating that in a competitive environment of university applications and internships in industry, a preference will be given to candidates offering the EPQ.
