Advantages of Kilroy's College Tuition

Our objective

The objectives of these courses of study are to ensure you will be prepared to succeed in your Leaving Certificate. Kilroy's College specialised approach to teaching Leaving Certificate subjects to our students, will give you unique advantages over others and it is a real alternative study choice. Our students receive continuous guidance and feedback as well as expert examination preparation techniques with the support of a Leaving Certificate expert throughout.

Our list of courses

We provide an extended range of Leaving certificate courses ( Irish, Maths, English, Biology, Chemistry, Accounting, Physics, French, Spanish, Business, History, German, Geography and Economics).

Kilroy's College Leaving Certificate Tuition is different

These courses are designed as step by step type tuition and with your own expert tutor's feedback you will see real progress being made as you proceed steadily through the study units. This will give you great encouragement. With written assignments throughout and mock examinations this means that Kilroy's College students have that extra edge on examination day. By constantly writing answers to typical examination questions, which are corrected and graded for your guidance and encouragement, examination practice becomes very familiar and much less intimidating.

Students planning to study Economics, History or Geography for the Leaving Certificate examination should note that the new syllabi for these subjects state that 20% of the overall mark for each subject will be awarded for practical project work that must be verified as the student's own by their class teacher. At present, while we aim to cover all the key areas of every Leaving Certificate subject we offer, as a distance learning college, we will not be able to verify practical work for students taking courses in these subjects.

Further information on the requirements for practical work in these subjects is available from us here at the college (ph. 01 639 4660) or from the State Examinations Commission (ph. 090 644 2702) or

NB: As all our tuition is provided by distance learning, please note that we do not provide supervised classes for the practical elements of the Biology, Chemistry and Physics courses.
