More than 360 students in the participating schools are able to access Studyclix.ie for free, courtesy of Capital Credit Union, meaning they get expert exam tips, see past papers broken down by topic and all the other great features on our site.

The schools involved are:

  • St. Tiernan’s Community School, Dundrum, (DEIS)
  • Ringsend College, Sandymount, (DEIS)
  • OLM Secondary School, Drimnagh, (DEIS)
  • Stepaside Educate Together, Leopardstown (Educate Together)

The Deis programme was introduced in 2006 and is aimed at providing supports to 200 schools with high concentrations of students from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds who are at risk of educational failure. There are 200 post-primary Deis schools in Ireland. The purpose of the scheme is Delivering Equality of Opportunity in Schools. Studyclix.ie aims to support other schools within the Deis programme by offering large discounts on their school licence options. 

 

Speaking at the launch, James Liston, Business Development Officer at Capital Credit Union, which has over 50,000 members and 10 branches in Dublin, said: “As an integral part of the local community, Capital Credit Union is delighted to partner with Studyclix.ie in directly helping hundreds of students with their Junior Cert and Leaving Cert exams. This partnership will offer four schools a chance to further develop the education of students in our catchment area. We are always looking for ways to support students and believe this will deepen our relationship with schools and our younger members.”

 

Capital CU already provides 20 third level scholarships each year to members who are going to college. Each scholarship is worth €1,500, meaning it gives away €30,000 each year. It also operates a School Saving Scheme for primary school students and a Student Affinity Programme for college students. Partner universities include University College Dublin, Dublin Business School and RCSI.
