The interpretation of various types of transnational higher education programs (joint, double, combined) used in the documents of international organizationsand national educational ministries of different countries has been studied. Definitions of higher education programs as a component of institutional transnational mobility have been generalized. In the result of the study it has been defined that: 1) programs are established and approved jointly by several universities; 2) students from each university are part of education in other universities partners; 3) the duration of training and received credits and examination results are recognized fully and automatically; 4) each university professor teaching at the partner university jointly develops curricula and establishes joint examination boards; 5) after completion of the program students receive state diplomas of each of the partner universities as well as informal diploma or certificate awardedjointly by all schools attached to the implementation of the curriculum. Two different approaches to identification of joint and double degree programs, based on qualification and curriculum, have been characterized. Problematic issues (recognition of intellectual property, rights for the development of curricula and related educational and teaching materials, establishing legal roles and responsibilities ofpartner institutions for academic, employment, appraisal, financial and administrative matters) related to their implementation in terms of transnational educational environment have been identified. Prospects offurther research in legal and normative, regulation of transnational higher education functioning in developed English-speaking countries under the globalization have been determined.
