Workshops for Years 12-13
The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) provides an opportunity for students to extend their abilities beyond the A-level syllabus, prepare for university-level study and earn additional UCAS points.
The University of Leeds is keen to support teachers delivering the taught element of the EPQ and hosts an extensive programme of events each year, designed and delivered by experienced academics and researchers.

Classroom activities and worksheets
The following resources have been developed for both pupils who are studying at A-level and require an introduction to research skills, and those who are in the process of beginning their research for an EPQ.
- Choosing a topic encourages students to think of potential EPQ topics and helps focus their ideas into a specific research question
- Introduction to research skills provides a basic overview of the research skills required for independent study
- Reading effectively and introduction to critical thinking introduces
students to academic journal articles and different reading strategies,
enabling them to obtain key information from a piece of text whilst
managing their time successfully
- Referencing and plagiarism outlines referencing, why it is important and introduces the concept of plagiarism.
