It is already being recognised by universities, schools, colleges and students for the valuable skills it provides for higher education or work.

We offer a comprehensive support package which includes personal support from our subject advisors, training events, free online resources and published resources.

How to link the Project to Edexcel History:

  • A level students could choose to look at one of their A2 History unit 3 controversies in more detail and carry out an Extended Project such as, ‘To what extent was Germany responsible for the outbreak of the First World War?’

  • A level students could choose to specialise in an area of interest while doing their A2 coursework enquiry and carry out an Extended Project which could help in applying for a university place. For example, ‘What was the impact of the Cold War on the growth of Arab nationalism?’

  • AS students who have decided not to continue with History A level could continue with the subject by doing an Extended Project in a year, such as, ‘Why did civil war break out in the United States?’
