In Top Global Course, we invite prominent researchers to stay at Kyoto University as "Distinguished Visiting Professors" or "Distinguished Visiting Project Professors" for one month or more and to give one-credit intensive lecture series.

There are two types of these lectures: “Special Lectures” are targeted at graduate students and give introduction to the most advanced research topics, while “Basic Lectures” are designed for fourth grade undergraduate to master’s students and cover more elementary parts. In addition, "Introductory Lectures" for undergraduate students take place occasionally. The Special Lectures are video recorded and made available online, sometimes together with lecture notes taken by graduate students.

Please see the "Activities" page for archive of past lectures. Lecture videos are available at the "Multimedia" page.
