New US joint venture college opens its doors

Duke Kunshan University, a new joint venture in higher education between China and the United States, welcomed its first students on 20 August, joining New York University Shanghai which opened in 2012, reports China Daily.

The university in Kunshan, Jiangsu province, was established by Duke University of Durham, North Carolina, and Wuhan University in Hubei province. The university said it would blend liberal education with Chinese tradition in a new approach to elite higher education. It offers degree and non-degree academic programmes for students from China and around the world.

DKU's masters programmes in global health, medical physics and management studies have attracted 42 graduate students from 11 countries including China, the United States, Russia, Argentina, Kenya and Singapore. They will receive degrees from Duke upon successful completion of their programmes.
