What is Kiron university? Is it only for refugees? How do I know, if I am even able to study? submitted by Rima in Education / Kiron Higher Education

Hello, my name is Rima and I am from Syria, I've done a bit of research in order to find a way to start my studies here in Germany and I have found this project for refugees called Kiron University. Since I'm a refugee, I cannot afford to pay for any courses at the moment so I would like to know more information about this initiative and see if I would be able to become a student. Can anyone help?

Thank you

Dear Rima, you can register at for KIRON here: kiron.university/students#...

As the studies in the first two years are online (MOOCs) and have started like other university students in October for the winter semester, it is late now to join those classes. But as soon as a new period is starting (probably then February 2016, spring semester) you will be informed and your application accepted.

Concerning general questions on studying with KIRON check the homepage again. Shortly - it will work like this: the first 1,5 - 2 years you will study online - then there will be a transfer - accourcing to the field of studies you choose after the 1st year - to one of Kiron's partner universities. The studies are for free in general. You will have to provide your living - but there is no conflict between receiving money as a asylum seeker and being a student.
later then, when you became an official student at the partner universities, you can also ask for BAFÖG - money the state provides you with to cover your living costs when studying.

Hello Rima, Kiron is not a university, we offer a learning platform for our students to start taking classes for their Bachelor's degree and then we help them transfer to one of our partner universities. Check this link out for more information: kiron.ngo/for-students/how...
