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

The EPQ conference programme for 2022 will be confirmed shortly.

Although this conference focuses on students undertaking the EPQ, we understand that not all students have this as an option. So we welcome all students to take part in the conference and develop their academic skills that can help with the transition into university. Find out more by downloading our getting ahead in your EPQ skills guide.
