An International Standardisation procedure for degrees at Universities is proposed. Known and agreed standards for all Certificates, Diplomas, Bachelors, Master and PhD qualifications will guide future education in Universities and institutions of learning. The emergence of Universities and variation in performance of graduates from different Universities has called for minimum standards from employers and other stakeholders for all graduates. Universities are now partly known to produce theoretical graduates not matching the expectations of employers. Functionality of Universities based on agreed standards will build trust in Universities and promote regional cooperation and mobility. Curriculum development has been initiated and controlled within departments and regulated by Higher Education Bodies, in future curricula will be co-developed and regulated regionally. Adoption of uniform standards will provide a unified Education system which is accepted regionally. Competence based education across Universities has been proposed among Universities. Producing competent and skilled graduates ready to create jobs and accepted for employment is feasible. Increased trust in University Education System by the employers and allowing graduates to receive regionally accepted transcripts and certificates is promoted. Possibility for moving across Universities, training, co-supervision and sharing resources will develop many Universities. Professional integration and partnerships across Universities and countries are encouraged.
