Ampleforth College offers all Sixth Form students the opportunity to undertake an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).

An EPQ is a research-based project undertaken on any topic of the student’s choosing: it can be further extension of a subject being studied at A level, a subject area the student wishes to study at university but which is not part of their school curriculum (e.g. Medicine) or simply an area of personal interest unrelated to their other studies. Thus an EPQ is a unique and exciting opportunity for students to manage their own learning.

UCAS points are awarded upon the completion of an EPQ and vary depending on the grade awarded. For more information as to how EPQ's can contribute towards UCAS points please click here.
