Yooni’s solution uses artificial intelligence and data analytics to compile a list of personalised, best-fit college courses unique to each student.

“With the unfortunate postponement of the Leaving Cert exams and the financial struggles that many people are facing as a result of Covid-19, we want to do our bit and help relieve some of the pressure students and parents are experiencing right now,” said Darragh Lucey, co-founder of Yooni.

“Our mission is quite simple — we strive to get the right student into the right course making use of artificial intelligence and data analytics” Darragh added.. We believe that it’s time to change the norm, to think differently as well as to simplify this exciting transition for everyone involved.”
