A-level Extended Project

The extended project qualification is aimed at people who would like to earn extra UCAS points for entry to university by studying a topic of their choice. You will decide what you want to study, how you will study it and whether the final outcome should be a dissertation, investigation, performance or artefact.

What will I study?

The course will develop:

  • Organisation and time management
  • Research
  • Extended writing
  • Evaluation and argument
  • Presentation

Entry requirements

Five GCSEs grade A*-C/4 -9

Successful interview demonstrating motivation and commitment to the course and an initial assessment.

Interviews for full time courses starting in September are postponed, but don't worry - applicants will instead be given a formal offer of a place on a suitable course. Other entry requirements still apply.

Where you meet the entry requirements for your chosen course you will be accepted.

Where you do not meet the entry requirements for your chosen course, we guarantee you a place on a suitable alternative. See How to Apply for further details.

What next?

The skills you will learn and the UCAS points you earn are relevant to all subjects at degree level.
