The Extended Essay


The Extended Essay is an independent, self-directed piece of research. It prepares students for the kind of research required at undergraduate level and gives them an opportunity to study in depth a topic of interest within a chosen subject. Each student is guided and advised by a subject-specialist supervisor.
