      THIS IS A DRAFT VERSION

      The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) is an opportunity for you to work independently, on a topic that really interests you or that you think is important.

      This guide offers some help and tips from members of [XXX}, a research group in the Open University, UK. All of them are researchers, so the advice they offer comes from their own experience.

      The guide is the first in a collection of four:

      1.       The Extended Project Qualification - finding your research question

      2.       The Extended Project Qualification - finding your evidence

      3.       The Extended Project Qualification – writing up your dissertation

      4.       The Extended Project Qualification – presenting your research

      The guides focus on the process of undertaking a dissertation/research review EPQ.

      The guide was written by Ann Grand, [XXX} at the Open University. It is based on resources created by colleagues including Richard Holliman, Trevor Collins, Gareth Davies, Victoria Pearson, Joe Kendall, Penny Green, David Sharp and Sarah Davies.
