Academic skills and EPQ conferences

We offer a range of academic skills workshops and EPQ conferences for sixth form students and mature applicants.

Unfortunately we are unable to offer bespoke academic skills or EPQ sessions on campus or in schools and colleges at the moment. We will be running an online EPQ conference. Please find details below.

Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) conferences

An Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) fosters independent learning and helps prepare you for higher education.

We offer a virtual EPQ conference to help support you in working towards this qualification. Our conferences will help to develop your skills with sessions on researching, academic integrity, referencing and presentation skills.

We understand that not all students have this as an option to take an EPQ. So we will be running an Academic Skills Conference to help those students develop their academic skills that can help with the transition to university.

We will be running two conferences in the autumn term:

  • Academic Skills Conference: 30th November 2022, 10.00am to 12.00 noon then 1.00pm to 2.30pm
  • EPQ Conference: 7th December 2022, 10.00am to 12.00 noon then 1.00pm to 2.30pm

The Academic Skills and EPQ conference bookings have now closed. Information about our next conferences will be available in Spring 2023.
