Kiron in Jordan

Supporting refugees and underserved Jordanian communities through access to high-quality education

Jordan has a long history of hosting refugees and hosts the second-highest share of refugees per capita in the world. There are currently  744,795 refugees registered in Jordan.

Kiron started operations in Jordan in 2016, supporting refugees and underserved Jordanian communities in the country. Kiron proposes a blended learning approach in Jordan, combining online courses from renowned Higher Education Institutions on our platform with offline learning in study centers, together with strong student support. 

Kiron Jordan at a glance:

1000+ students online and offline
Certificate programs running in camps and host communities.
42% female students
6 partner universities

Three main pillars of our approach

$item-1
Transfer and online credits recognition in universities Kiron adapts the online curriculum tracks offered to the Jordanian university model.

Kiron provides the opportunity for the students to study credits for free on the Kiron Campus and then get their online credits recognized when they apply and transfer to a local partner university. 

The students will then be able to save tuition fees by transferring the courses they have already studied online, pursue their studies offline and graduate with a bachelor’s degree from that university.

A strong blended learning & support system Online and in-person guidance for students

Kiron offers tailored online and in-person guidance to students depending on the goals that they want to achieve, whether they want to go to university or envisage other pathways. Students have access to our online forum, help center, mentoring services and others, as well as in-person office hours and welcome sessions.

Kiron proposes a blended education initiative, consisting of a digital learning certificate program and peer-to-peer support components. Students are organized in groups and offered access to study centers in different regions of Jordan. With computers, an internet connection, students  pursue their online studies with a tutor present to guide them through the course, and give complementary offline academic support.

A policy advocacy agenda on online learning Advancing the culture and the recognition of online learning

To ensure sustainable prospects for our students and beyond, Kiron also holds a policy advocacy agenda in Jordan. 

We work with multiple stakeholders, students, faculty members, NGOS and ministerial bodies including the Ministry of Education and Higher Education, in order to advance the culture and the recognition of online learning on a macro-level in the country.

     Kiron provided me with the chance to continue my education. I also love helping others, and Kiron gave me the opportunity to do exactly that by becoming a facilitator.
