Pathway to Success Program overview


The Pathways to Success Program promotes career readiness through career coaching as well as graduate school and fellowship advising to assist students in a successful transition into post-graduate opportunities. 

Career Path

Students interested in working after graduation will work with Career Services to discuss career preparation, resources, and plans.

Graduate & Professional School

Students on the graduate school pathway will be matched to a faculty or staff mentor based on their intended graduate program. Their mentor will help them identify appropriate graduation programs based on their academic interests.


Duke Kunshan University provides support for students applying for a wide variety of national and international fellowships. The Fellowships pathway should be followed in combination with one of the other pathways.

Post Graduate Obligations

Students from some countries have post-graduate obligations, such as military or other types of national service. Students should make sure they are aware of necessary requirements, paperwork, and logistics. Please check with your home country for more information. International Student Services will assist international students with post-graduate obligation requirements. Chinese Student Services will assist domestic students with post-graduate requirements (if necessary).
