Under the programme, universities in Japan are offered prioritized support for university reforms over a period of ten years (2014-23). In 2014 the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) selected so-called Top Global Universities based on performance and ambitious planning (Website JSPS).

The 37 Top Global Universities are categorized into 13 Type A (Top Type) universities that conduct world-leading education and research and 24 Type B (Global Traction Type) universities that lead the internationalization of Japanese society.

  • Hokkaido University
  • Tohoku University
  • University of Tsukuba
  • The University of Tokyo
  • Tokyo Institute of Technology
  • Nagoya University
  • Kyoto University
  • Osaka University
  • Kyushu University.

plus two private RU11 universities designated as Type A Universities:

In addition, the University of Hiroshima and the Tokio Medical and Dental University have been selected as Type A Universities.
