Student Profile | Sultan
Kiron Open Higher Education
Sultan was studying physics at a university in his hometown. Due to political instability in Syria, Sultan migrated to Germany. When he arrived, he was not entirely sure what to do next. Sultan had a growing interest in computer programming, and someone suggested that he look into Kiron’s computer science (CS) courses. The CS track consists of a myriad of courses from HTML to Object-Oriented Programming in Java, which was exactly what Sultan needed. His motivation for studying with Kiron was to enter the job market. After two years of completing the CS courses online, he received the certification he needed to start a job in Germany. Equipped with the proper knowledge and credential, Sultan was able to begin working as a cloud computing specialist and a technical consultant. Sultan advocates for online learning because it eliminates numerous bureaucratic barriers many refugees face in their host countries. The ease and flexibility of online learning combined with a recognized credential empower students like Sultan to enter the job market and be confident in their skills.
