251 high school seniors from around the world learned recently they have been accepted into the inaugural class of undergraduates at Duke Kunshan University.

The accepted students are from 47 countries and regions, and the vast majority of the overseas students are from the United States.

The first class will arrive in August and is expected to include 175 Chinese mainland students who will be finalized after they take the national college entrance exam (gaokao) in June.

"We are thrilled to see such strong interest in Duke Kunshan University from so many countries and regions,” said Duke Kunshan’s chancellor Liu Jingnan. “Our goal is to build a truly international learning and living environment, and we are confident that these international students and their Chinese peers will make a phenomenal class.”

"We are deeply impressed by both the Chinese and international students, whose academic performance and extracurricular achievements are outstanding,” said Denis Simon, executive vice chancellor at Duke Kunshan.
