A dissertation is a long essay on a particular subject whilst an artefact is an object which you make.

for a diss, how to:
- read and cite academic resources
- structure a long piece of writing (i'll never write a longer essay at university)
- dedicate time outside normal study to some relatively extensive research work

For me the biggest thing was time management, for a large project like an EPQ it's really important to have a good idea of where you should be at, and how long you expect to spend completing various sections.

I did an EPQ (Artefact) and thoroughly enjoyed it, plus picking something relevant to your degree subject or career interests gives you loads to talk about in applications and interviews.

What subject are you thinking of doing it based on? I built a 'robot' using a raspberry pi which gave me loads to write about like what language I was going to use, design etc. Remember even though it's an Artefact there is still quite a bit of writing and you need to be able to justify all of your method. Make sure you pick something where you can talk about decisions you made, i.e. I knew I was going to write the code in C but in my discussion I wrote as though I hadn't decided and evaluated the pros and cons of a few languages.

I would say the most important thing is to keep on top of it; because it's less structured than other courses I know so many people who quit halfway through or got a really low grade because they didn't put the effort in.
