  • I am a current student here

    I’m actually from Duke Kunshan University which is Duke’s campus in China in collaboration with Whuhan university of China and I have to say it’s an absolutely amazing place. It’s a hub for like minded intellects keen on challenging and educating one another. I’m actually part of the inaugural class and what won me over about DKU was it’s attention to students. We get so much from the faculty in terms of internship opportunities that actually start from your freshman year and study abroad opportunities in Duke’s USA,Russia and Peru campuses. we have the chance to study in a research university being taught by estimmed professor from Duke and Wuhan University. It’s a great immersive experience in the beautiful city of Kunshan which is 20 minutes away from Shanghai on a speed train. The city is vibrant with tradition while being so modern. The campus is absolutely breathtakingly beautifu, So environmentally sustainable and modern and our dorms are so luxurious that we all believe we’re being spoiled! We even have a campus comfort Dog and massage chairs in the common room! It’s a place that academically enriches you in your absolute comfort! Besides the international community on campus is the best teacher! Hope this helps!

    Avail yourself of the many opportunities. Don't limit yourself to campus, as there are many irecreational and professional opportunities to explore in Durham, the greater Research Triangle Park area and even more distant parts of North Carolina (Asheville, the coast, etc.).

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    Persevere through your last years of high school because Duke wants to see how you are different from all the other prospective applicants, and overcoming adversity and hardships in your school is one of the first steps! Duke is a place where dreams are created, so it's good to come prepared with fresh and exciting ideas, as well as an open mind to hear out the opinions of others.
