Duke Kunshan University, a Sino-American partnership between Duke University in the U.S. and Wuhan University in China, offers a world-class education in dynamic China, culminating in a degree from Duke University and a degree from Duke Kunshan University.
Students will have the opportunity to study and live in both China and the U.S., developing an enhanced international perspective and gaining greater access to global opportunities.
The city of Kunshan is situated between Shanghai and Suzhou in the heart of the Yangtze River Delta Region, one of the most developed areas in China. It is a national leader in economic growth and urban development, all without neglecting the rich historical legacy and stunning natural environment that have attracted people to this city for more than two thousand years. Kunshan is less than a 20-minute train ride by high-speed rail to both Shanghai and Suzhou.
The Duke Kunshan campus features state-of-the-art classroom and meeting facilities, extensive library resources, modern student and faculty housing and dining spaces, and excellent recreational facilities. Multi-purpose meeting spaces, break rooms, and study areas allow students to work individually or in groups to review course material, complete assignments, and participate in the vibrant, intellectual life on campus.
A free shuttle bus runs regularly between the campus and downtown Kunshan, offering students easy access to off-campus dining, shopping, recreational centres and an inter-city train station.
