The academic model

The phase of online studies is based on a digital and fully modularized curriculum that clusters MOOCs created and provided primarily by higher education institutions. These courses are bundled into modules on our learning platform, Kiron Campus, based on learning outcomes and independent of the MOOC provider. All Kiron curricula meet the standards of the European Higher Education Area and thus offer a coherent educational program.

Kiron negotiates learning agreements for the recognition of prior learning with partner universities, who can then award up to 60 credits for completed Kiron modules according to the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). Kiron students can study online while working towards fulfilling formal requirements to apply to a university. If accepted to university, they have the chance to complete their studies to earn a standard, accredited bachelor’s degree.
