For refugees arriving in a new country, finding a job is everything. Without a job, the process of building a new life is extremely difficult. Earning an income and getting to know the local people, customs and culture is key to integrate into the society.
Less than 1% of refugees, asylum seekers and internally displaced people have access to higher education. Even though many are motivated to continue or begin their education to increase their chances of getting a job, due to obstacles such as language barriers, missing legal documents, and financing, it’s not always possible to do so. Kiron offers an online university platform which enables refugees, who are often on the move and whose futures are uncertain, the opportunity to start studying irrespective of their location or asylum status.
Through our project, Kiron will create an innovative and supportive on- and off-line learning environment on their platform to enhance the student’s chances to succeed with their studies. The project will implement an online system to track student’s progress, develop free online education materials and create a motivational online student community. This will be combined with a broad range of offline support functions, such as live tutoring, support with language certificate funding, and a summer school for female students. The project will support Kiron students to apply to partner universities, where they can finish their studies and graduate with an accredited university degree.
