Because Duke Kunshan University graduate degrees are considered Duke University degrees, the Duke Kunshan application process is similar to that for Duke University’s graduate programs.
Applicants to Duke Kunshan University’s graduate programs must hold the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution. If the degree was granted by an institution outside of the U.S., the institution must be accredited by the governing educational body of the country (such as the ministry of education).
In addition to the prerequisite bachelor's degree, the following are required:
- Completed online application form
- Statement of Purpose
- Three letters of recommendation
- Transcript(s) from each post-secondary institution attended
- Official GRE scores
- English Language Proficiency Test Scores*
(*English language exam is required of non-native English speakers only)
The data you enter in the online application, including the contents of all attachments, is subject to verification. It is your responsibility to ensure that all the information provided in the application is accurate. Duke Kunshan University and Duke University reserve the right to withdraw an offer of admission or to terminate enrollment if there is any discrepancy between the submitted application data and the subsequently verified data.
All students are automatically considered for merit scholarships based on their Graduate School application – no additional application is required. In addition, accepted students may apply for scholarships and awards based on financial need, country of origin, and field of study. For details on how to apply for these scholarships and awards, please contact the Medical Physics program directly.
