In Hewitt College, we study the Later Modern Course (1815 to 1993). This is a wide course, offering many options. Dr. Eleanor Solon, Leaving Certificate textbook author, specialises in the following topics:

Section One, document-based questions on three case studies;

Section Two, Irish History (1870-1914 and 1912-1949);

and Section Three, European History (1870-1914).

The research topic project(allocated 20% of the overall marks) is fully completed in 5th year.

Complementary Subjects: English, Politics and Society (available September 2019), Religion.

At Hewitt College, we are finalising our roadmap to safely guide our students on their Leaving Certificate journey.

For the coming academic year, no external student will be admitted to Hewitt College during term time.

– Supervised Study: These facilities are only available to full-time Hewitt College students.

– Grinds | Extra Subject: Will not be available on campus. We are currently organising our online grinds | extra subject programme.

We apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment. However, our priority must be, as always, our full-time students. We have taken these measures to ensure their safety and continuity of learning.
