Universities support and value the EPQ as evidence of a student's ability to use a range of skills that are vital for successful study in higher education. The EPQ:

  • gives students the opportunity to choose their own topic
  • makes students responsible for their own learning and development
  • inspires and motivates students – completing the project gives them greater confidence and a sense of achievement.
  • teaches new skills, such as, independent research, project management, reflection and self-directed learning
  • awards 70 UCAS points for an A*.
