Studyclix was founded in 2009 in Sligo by secondary school teacher, Luke Saunders, and award winning software engineer, Keith Wright. Together, they had the simple idea to create an online resource for secondary level students and teachers in Ireland that would make exams easier, a resource that was hard to find, and so Studyclix began!
Studyclix was created with the hope of bringing forward an innovative method of studying for the Junior and Leaving Cert exams, something that Luke noticed hadn’t changed, improved or had been modernised since he left school. We are an ambitious fast growing company and want to launch Studyclix in ten countries by 2020. We currently are live with versions for Ireland's exam system and Australia's VCE exams.
We know exams are stressful and that time is precious, so we strive to create new innovative study tools and provide more and more content and resources to make studying and teaching easier, more efficient and more effective!
Studyclix is made up of a hard-working team, committed to making exams easier for students and teachers alike.
