Opportunities to earn a Top 10 U.S. Degree when studying at Duke Kunshan University, China
Duke Kunshan University is a highly selective research-oriented, liberal arts and sciences university located near Shanghai, China, whose primary mission is to enable students from around the world to lead purposeful and productive lives. As a Sino-US joint-venture university of Wuhan University in China and Duke University in the U.S., we embrace the integration of local traditions of thoughts and promote cross-cultural understanding and cross-border innovative collaborations.
In our undergraduate program, students earn two bachelor’s degrees upon graduation: a U.S. degree from top-10-ranked Duke University and a Chinese degree from Duke Kunshan University. With high achieving international students and world-class faculty from around the world, Duke Kunshan offers a uniquely global and cutting-edge academic experience. Our students study on both the Duke Kunshan campus in China and the Duke University campus in the U.S., giving them access to resources across two elite academic institutions.
Courses are taught in English and are primarily conducted in small, discussion-based classes with a student to faculty ratio of 7:1. Student life is considered an extension of the academic experience, with various opportunities to explore Asia and develop cross-cultural competency.
At Duke Kunshan University, we want to help students make an international education a reality. We offer generous scholarship and financial aid packages to ensure top-tier candidates from around the world (including Vietnamese students) can have the opportunity to study with us. Over 80% of our international students receive scholarships and/or financial aid support.
Scholarship and financial aid are awarded for the entirety of the four-year program on the condition that all academic requirements are met. The highest amount awarded provides funds to cover 100% of tuition (~220,000 USD or 5 billion VND) for the duration of the four-year program. We offer both merit-based scholarships and need-based financial aid. When you apply, you’ll automatically be considered for merit scholarships, which are awarded based on both achievement and potential. To be considered for need-based aid, extra documentation must be submitted through the CSS profile, which will help us understand your financial needs. We’re looking for students with diverse backgrounds who have the potential to excel inside and outside the classroom and who will contribute to building a strong and inclusive international community.
