I suggest to establish a temporary campus in Midgard for Asgardia University. As Asgardia University will have academic standards competitive to universities in developed countries, I suggest that the temporary location of Asgardia University will be in either Greenland, Iceland or New Zealand which are far places and considered as metaphors for the residence in space. Antarctica has not been populated yet to be a location for Asgardia University even though it is suggested to be a temporary place of residence for Asgardia nation on Earth.

I do not agree that Asgardia University will be based on the web and online coursers. I suggest that Asgardia University signs twining agreements with high academic standard universities around the world so that asgardian students will study academic degrees in these universities and finally get the certificate from Asgardia University. Asgardian students may study various courses some of which in a different university having a twining agreement with Asgardia University to get a degree for an academic program from Asgardia University.

Studying in Asgardia University will be free of tuition fees for Asgardians. The exemption of tution fees will be also applied for Asgardian students when they take academic degrees or courses in universities signing twinning agreements with Asgardia University even if these universities charge tuition fees for either students of the same country of the university or international students. For example, if an asgardian student wants to study in a university in UK signing a twinning agreement with Asgardia University, s/he will be exempted of tuition fees even though tuition fees are applied for both UK and international students.

Sounds a lot like the Open University. A self funding university that teaches through the internet and post. See: Open University

Hello everybody,

I've seen great ideas over here. There might be a slight detail you've omitted to consider - The language barrier. As a language trainer/consultant in the aerospace industry as well as a Uni. lecturer, I know that for non-native speakers it wouldn't be easy to follow some topics. Could I suggest to add some language training?

Love it! In my country (USA) we just a got a complete whackadoo as the Secretary of Education. She is pushing for school vouchers, where every child can attend any school, private or public, using the money the state would have paid for public school (I'll save my reservations about this idea for another discussion). I immediately thought this was the perfect time to start a "Starfleet Academy", training future space colonists. AU could be the same thing with a much cooler name :) My idea was high school through undergraduate all together with everyone participating in some form of research (even if your passion is hair styling, we need the noosphere of humanity with us). Anyone in the US interested in doing this?

It seems that rather than focusing too much on the creation of new courses, we would be well served, at the beginning, to organize departments that provide access/links and recognition of available online courses that can lead to greater recognition within Asgardia.

I think this is a great idea! What better way to support our citizens than by fostering an atmosphere of learning!

I do have a few thoughts on such a University:

1. We would need to have such a university accredited through Asgardia and follow some of the world standards for education

2. This will allow AU to issue degrees for those who take the requisite courses.

3. Following traditional (US is my base so I go from my experience here) study plans, we can thereby issue degrees to our students and have them recognized on earth too.

4. Would we be able to do this for free? I am willing to take the time and create lesson plans and make virtual courses. But can we ask Asgardia NGO to host this University on their servers?

Great idea. Of course the university will need a library. We will build a library that will be ready to be located in space. You can give your support here: https://asgardia.com/en/blog/candidate/809654-16132-we-will-build-the-worldacutes-first-orbital-library-strategist-candidate/

I think this is a brilliant idea. Asgardia's future lies in its potential for educating the next generation.

An efficient and healthy education system and institution is a must-have for any nation. I am currently doing research on classroom design and students with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), looking at papers from psychological and behavioral science journals. I seek to work alongside other Strategists of Asgardia in the future to design the best learning spaces for Asgardians.

If anyone wishes to study this topic alongside me, I can provide my research sources and references on request.

As a Strategist Candidate for Innovation, I am working on designing education systems and spaces to provide the best learning experience for all Asgardians. Please provide your support for my Campaign so that we can work together to create a healthy educational environment for Asgardia.

Yours faithfully,

Steven 'Edrick' Wang,
Strategist Candidate from Australia.

Hello Asgardians,

I recently registered for the incoming parliament election for the Italian District and my program has as core value the Asgardia's education program.

I saw a lot of very valuable comments in this thread. Please feel free to contact me to share what your proposals are.

I hope you will support me in my campaign.

Have a wonderful day

Fabio
