The education ministry said Tuesday it will not provide any subsidies to Tokyo Medical University for this or the next fiscal year after the institution was found to have discriminated against female applicants in its entrance examinations.

The ministry said the decision is based on the indictment last year of university leaders over the backdoor admission of a bureaucrat's son in exchange for a government subsidy.

Seven other universities that were similarly found to have manipulated their entrance exams will also have state subsidies reduced, according to the ministry.
