How about Duke Kunshan University in China?
In recent years, with the further opening up of Chinese society, the educational cooperation between China and the United States has been increasing. The most remarkable thing is that many famous American universities have set up branch schools in China, such as New York University Shanghai and Duke Kunshan University. Now let’s talk with the editor about the level of Kunshan Duke University. I hope it will be helpful to you.
Duke University is one of the top 10 universities in the United States, and the top 30 in the world, and its business school is the strongest in the United States. The famous alumni include former US President Nixon, current Apple CEO cook, NBA star Kerry Owen and so on.
Duke Kunshan University is located in Yushan Town, Kunshan City, Jiangsu Province. It was approved by the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China and officially enrolled students in 2014. Its future development orientation is to be a world-class comprehensive research university.
In recent years, there have been more and more discussions about this university on the Internet. Some people say that it is comparable to Tsinghua University and Peking University, while others say that it is a bogus college. Then, what is the level of Duke Kunshan University? What level of university is it equivalent to in China?
1. It absolutely cannot compare with Tsinghua University or Peking University
According to many world university rankings, Duke University lags behind Tsinghua University in the world rankings. In the QS World University Rankings 2021, Tsinghua University ranks 15th, Peking University ranks 23rd, Duke University ranks 42nd. Duke headquarters in the United States can’t compare with Tsinghua University or Peking University. How can a branch, Kunshan Duke University be comparable to Tsinghua University and Peking University?
2. It is definitely not a bogus college
First of all, Duke Kunshan University is running by three parts: Duke University in the United States, Wuhan University in China, and the People’s Government of Kunshan City. Secondly, the faculty strength of Duke Kunshan University is beyond doubt. They are all professors from Wuhan University and Duke University. There is no deception on this point. Therefore, Duke University in Kunshan is definitely not the bogus college that some netizens have called it.
3. What is the level of Duke Kunshan University?
According to the opinions of most netizens on the Internet, Duke Kunshan University, as a whole, is above the average among the universities in China.
Although Duke Kunshan University has a small area and a small number of students, its educational conditions are very good. The names of Duke University and Wuhan University, as well as their novel recruitment and teaching mode, are conducive to further study abroad, which still attract students.
However, a good university, teachers and educational conditions are only one aspect. The background, reputation, influence and social recognition are more important, because they directly determine the competitiveness of your recruitment and the employment of graduates. The conditions of running a school can be improved with money, but money cannot buy the inside information and influence of a famous school.
If we compare the universities in Jiangsu Province, although the students who go to Duke Kunshan University have higher scores in the college entrance examination, many of them are considering going abroad of China. If we do not consider going abroad of China, the comprehensive strength of Duke University in Kunshan is probably equivalent to that of Jiangsu University and Yangzhou University.
There are many other top 36 universities in China, or C9 universities, lots of choice for you.
Welcome to study in China.
