An autonomous university typically refers to a university that exercises independent control over its day-to-day operations and curriculum,[1] as opposed to a university in which the government or a government agency controls the academic programs.[1]

The main dimensions of university autonomy are academic, organizational, financial and staff autonomy.[2]:7[1]

By country[edit]
