FREE BACK TO SCHOOL COURSES

Online… On Demand… Free of Charge…

At The Academy we understand that the return to school will be a stressful time for all second level students. With this in mind, we have designed Free Back to School Courses across a vast array of subjects.

These courses take place fully online and are completely free of charge. The aim of these Back to School Courses is to ensure that students are ready to hit the ground running in the new academic year.

Key information:

  • Each Free Course is 1.25 hours in duration and students can register for up to 6 courses in total. This gives students up to 7.5 hours of free tuition with some of Ireland’s most passionate and dedicated teachers.
  • Each Free Course covers a key area of the course providing valuable insights for students. For more information on specific course content see the ‘Subjects’ tab.
  • Access to our ‘on-demand’ learning platform will be granted to students for an entire month where they can watch, pause, rewind each course as many times as they wish.
  • All courses come with our renowned study notes which students can download free of charge.
