The Double First Class University Plan or Double Top University Plan (Chinese: 双一流; pinyin: shuāngyīliú)[1][2] is a Chinese government plan conceived in 2015[3] to comprehensively develop a group of elite Chinese universities and individual university departments into world-class universities and disciplines by the end of 2050.[4]

The full list of the sponsored universities and disciplines was published in September 2017, which includes 42 first class universities (36 Class A schools and six Class B schools) and 465 first class disciplines (spread among 140 schools including the first class universities).[5][1]

It was unclear whether this plan represents a new way of ranking universities in China,[4] or replaces Project 211, Project 985, or the C9 League.[5]
