EPQ study skills

Welcome to the University of Derby Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) and study skills webpage. On this page you can download resources, watch presentations and find links to our podcast series, all of which provide great advice and support whilst you're studying at home and developing your project. 

First things first

We recognise that doing the EPQ provides you with an excellent introduction to key skills needed to succeed at university. However, we also know that the qualification isn't easy, so have included a wealth of resources on this page to help you develop and succeed in your project.

If you are at the start of your EPQ project, we recommend you watch our presentation. It was created in advance of a live chat that took place on 21 May. The presentation talks through where to begin with your project and how to decide on a topic and question.
