Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) Students Gain Valuable Research Skills
As part of their Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), a group of 31 Year 12 students visited Durham University Library. The students engaged very well in a seminar-style session, with a member of the university’s Academic Skills team. The talk focused on research, analysis, referencing and bibliographies tailored specifically to the EPQ and gave them guidance about how to use the university library catalogue.
The students were shown how to locate resources and use the impressive library, which is spread over a number of floors. The students were confident and pro-active, not daunted by the busy library and sourced resources that would help with their individual EPQ titles. They scanned resources to enable them to continue working at home.
The students enjoyed this visit and gained many new skills and they can now return to use the library to continue to research in their own time. The students were an absolute credit to the Sixth Form.
