EPQ- charity event instead of essay for LAW?

    • Thread Starter

    I should be starting my EPQ after October half term.

    I am applying to study law at university in these next few weeks and originally thought I'd be doing a 5000 word essay for my extended project- but was wondering if doing a charity event would still be as valuable?

    I get it doesn't test all the same written/research skills but I think the ability to organise, plan and research for an event is as valuable, just in a different way.

    Will universities value this when it comes down to 'admiring' a candidate with an EPQ- I know most unis say 'EPQ within relevant area' so would that mean a written essay or could any charity event be relevant?

    Please give advice and your realistic opinion on what universities think of those that do the EPQ but choose to do an event instead of an essay
