Abstract

Higher education in ASIA currently attempts to reinforce core competencies in their curriculum due to the greatest concerns of students, governments and employers toward the quality of higher education outcomes. It has begun by turning the policies and the curriculum from conventional objective to recent contexts of global changes and employment settings. Universities are recommended to develop a curriculum which is not only aim to develop students’ knowledge but also to develop students’ core competencies namely communication skill, IT skill, numeracy, learning how to learn, problem solving, working with others, and subject content competencies. However, the frameworks of core competencies development should be formulated and implemented into action at university as a result ‘core competences’ must become a measurement of graduate qualification. By this manner, intended outcomes of higher education namely employability, lifelong learning and good citizenship will be attained.
