The Extended Project is an excellent opportunity to give you the advantage over other students in the competitive university application process. It defines you as someone who is able to work independently beyond the traditional confines of A level study, to manage your time and learning and to make a contribution to the wider community. These are the very skills, attributes and interests that the top universities are looking for in undergraduates and the course gives you the opportunity to show that you have what is required to succeed at the very top.


You will be required to plan, manage, develop, review and present a project of your own choice. This means that you are able to gain a qualification in a topic that you love doing as a hobby or just want to expand upon. Students are encouraged to choo

How will it be delivered?

Entry requirements

Please note: this course is available to Year 2 Level 3 students only

To enrol for an A level programme we normally expect applicants to have achieved good GCSE passes in at least six subjects, these must:

• demonstrate the suitability for Advanced Level study

• have been achieved at Grade 4/C as a minimum

• include two at Grade 5/B as a minimum

Mathematics - If not achieved within the scope of the above should normally be achieved at grade 3/D. If mathematics is not achieved at grade 4/C then it will be a requirement to continue to study at the correct level until a grade 4 is achieved. Subjects with a mathematical content will require a higher grade.

In addition to the standard College entry requirements, this particular course requires students to have achieved grade 6 or above in either GCSE English Language or GCSE Mathematics, and grade 5 in the other one.

Your next steps...

The Extended Project defines you as someone capable of working beyond the curriculum, a person who is self-motivated and able to successfully project manage, work to target and review their work – universities want all of these qualities
