Kiron enables access to higher education and successful learning for refugees and disadvantaged locals through digital solutions.
What is the Kiron Model?
The Kiron courses, which lead to a certificate, are considered ‘micro-credentials’, which can be recognized at local, international and online Universities, and in the labor market in Jordan and Lebanon, in refugees home country, and also in resettlement countries. Therefore, our students have the flexibility to study, whilst deciding or waiting for the next step.
Kiron has created a unique learning program set up by a committed team of learning engineers. Our courses are designed to utilise the reputed online MOOC platforms such as Coursera, Edx, FUN or Open Classrooms and are devised based on academic demands. Our students have constant access to our program from wherever they may be, completely free of charge.
Kiron is currently working on offering two study tracks to our students in Jordan and Lebanon where they can transfer to partner universities to study a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or Business & Economics. Otherwise, students in Jordan, Lebanon, and elsewhere, have access to all of our study tracks without the option of transfer.
- Business and Economics
- Computer Science
