The Extended Project is a chance for students to complete a research project on a chosen subject. It could be a written report of about 5,000 words (e.g. an extended essay, an investigation of a hypothesis or an academic report), or a written report of at least 1,000 words with other evidence of extended work, like a video, CD, DVD, model or performance.
Each student has preparation sessions with his or her EPQ supervisor and the Director of Studies during the Hilary Term of the first year, and the proposed research project is signed off by the Director of Studies before the Easter vacation. Preparations will be finished in the Trinity Term before the project is completed over the Mid-Course Summer vacation.
