National Universities

This article is about the generic term. For universities offering doctoral degrees, see research university. For the private National University in San Diego, California, see National University (California). For other uses, see National University (disambiguation).

A national university is generally a university created or managed by a government, but which may at the same time operate autonomously without direct control by the state.

Some national universities are associated with national cultural or political aspirations. For example, the National University of Ireland during the early days of Irish independence collected a large amount of information about the Irish language and Irish culture. In Argentina, the national universities are the result of the 1918 Argentine university reform and subsequent reforms, which were intended to provide a secular university system without direct clerical or government influence by bestowing self government on the institutions.
