Teachers can arrange for their post-16 students to visit The University of Manchester campus to support them with the Extended Project qualification for their students.
The Extended Project is a single piece of work of a student's choosing that requires evidence of planning, preparation, research and independent learning. It is available as a stand-alone qualification for A-level students and forms part of the Diploma.
Dates have been scheduled throughout the year where teachers can bring groups of students onto campus. These visits can include a research skills workshop, a library visit or both.
The Research Skills Workshop is led by staff and postgraduate students from the University. The workshop introduces students to academic research through a series of interactive activities and group work. The library session is led by library staff and gives students an introduction to locating materials – both books and online resources – for their assignments. Afterwards, students have independent research time where they can make use of the extensive resources the library has to offer.
