Thanks for your message and your interest in Kiron for your son. I want to explain Kiron, so that you have a better idea of what we can offer you. Kiron is a non-profit organization that helps refugees all over the world gain access to higher education. We work with existing open online courses such as Coursera, Edx, Iversity, and Udacity to provide you with the opportunity to start your Bachelor’s degree from anywhere, but we are NOT an official university. We are based in four focus countries: Germany, France, Jordan and Turkey.
The Kiron study phase is divided into online and offline studies, a blended learning approach. There are 4 career tracks: Business, Engineering, Computer Science and Social Sciences. The first 1-2 years of your studies are self paced, online courses that you can access on the online platform, and then after you complete the required 60 ECTS credits, we will help you transfer into one of our partner universities so that you can complete the remaining 2 years there, in an offline setting. Courses that are marked as recommended courses on the Kiron Platform will most probably be accredited by our partner universities. Throughout year 1&2 you also have to focus on learning English & the language of the partner university where you want to transfer to. German level B2 (or even C1, depending on the university) for example will be required to enter a partner university in Germany.
To apply at a partner university you will have to pass a language test, provide high school and other documents & complete certain exams. Some universities ask for further entry qualifications. Don’t worry about that yet, we will help you with that later on. Once you have been accepted at a partner university, the credits from your online courses will be accepted and depending on how many you have finished successfully you might finish your Bachelor within less than 4 years overall.
