Question regarding EPQ and InternshipWatch
Considering the time and all, if students need to choose between EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) and Internship, which one should be done? What is more beneficial to get offers from UK universities for undergraduate admission?
Is it possible to do EPQ online? Could you please recommend places/sites to do online EPQ?
Thanks a lot for any advice.
Advice about 'Why do an EPQ' from Uni of Bath here : https://www.bath.ac.uk/campaigns/tak...r-application/
The point of an EPQ is that its your first 'research project' - and that you have a mentor to guide you through this process and you learn about research and independent study not just the subject topic. To do it on your own as self-study therefore is a bit self-defeating and likely to fail. This online course tells you how to do an EPQ - https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/epq-success - but I would never recommend anyone to attempt a distance-learning EPQ as self-study. Many students I have guided through UCAS applications actually drop out of their EPQ without assessment - its simply too much work on top of A levels - and thats with good school support.
