In today's world, the only way to achieve sustainable development, the expansion of higher education. Although, common system of higher education in the world is co-educational, but single- gender universities have supporters yet. Single-sex higher education, also known as single-gender higher education, is the practice of conducting education where male and female students attend separate classes or in separate buildings or universities. The practice was common before the 19th century, particularly in secondary education and higher education. Single-sex education in many cultures is advocated on the basis of tradition as well as religion, and is practiced in many parts of the world. Recently, there has been a surge of interest and establishment of single-sex colleges and universities due to educational research. The study of Linda Sax (2009) showed women graduates of single-sex schools exhibit higher academic engagement than do their coeducational counterparts as measured by survey questions on time spent studying or doing homework, studying with other students, tutoring other students and talking with teachers outside of class. Also, women who attended single-sex schools tended to outscore their coeducational counterparts on the SAT. In addition to reporting higher levels of academic engagement, single-sex graduates, especially those from independent schools, tend to exhibit slightly higher levels of academic self-confidence. Graduates of single-sex schools also arrive at college with greater confidence in their mathematical and computer abilities. Present Condition- What Is: While most colleges and universities in the world remain coeducational, but at the end of the 20th century, there begun a movement back to single-sex higher education. Advocates of single-sex education, where male and female students attend separate classes or attend separate schools, cite studies that show students from single-sex environments outperform those from coeducational schools. Others advocate single-sex education on the basis of tradition or religious and cultural values. In Islamic countries (such as Princess Nourah bint Abdulrahman University & Effat university in Saudi Arabia ), strict adherence to the rules of Islam forbids the intermingling of males and females, and schools are single-sex only. Even in Iran, for instance, the prestigious Tehran University is open to both sexes. From 2002 to 2006, women accounted for sixty percent of entrants to the University, but Al-Zahra university is open for girls only (New World Encyclopedia, 2015). Asian University for Women (established 2008) is the first liberal arts university for women in South Asia and is one of only two international universities in Bangladesh.AUW's current student body comes from 16 countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, Canada, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Palestine, Sri Lanka, Syria, and Vietnam. In non- Islamic countries, for instance, Dongduk Women's University is Korea's first private educational institute for women only, originated from Dongwon Girls School (Eui-sook), founded with private capital in 1908. DWU has about 7,500 students and 350 faculty members. Desired Condition: What Should Be: A suitable model for higher education should be design for Muslim`s women, that enable us to better response to the development needs of Muslim`s States in higher education with addressing of limitations for women. Rationale Why: Generalizing access to higher education for young women in Islamic world; Ensuring important status of women in development acquisition; Developing higher education competitiveness; Re-innovating cultural and educational policies.
