The Social Start-up Kiron Open Higher Education was founded in 2015 by Vincent Zimmer and Markus Kressler. Kiron is the world’s first online learning platform, that enables refugees to have unbureaucratic access to higher education and successful learning through digital solutions. The blended learning model 2.0 of Kiron consists of an online study phase for about two years followed by additional two years at a partner university to finish with a fully accredited bachelor degree. Thus refugees can start studying immediately and regardless of their asylum status, language skills and free of charge. As an overall goal Kiron aims at fostering an economic as well as social integration in host countries and empowers refugees to step back into a self-determined life through studying. Consequently, the study program is embedded in an ecosystem of support services, centered around the student’s needs.
