Terminology

Two students with a computer

As a new university student you may find some of the language and terminology which the University uses unfamiliar. As you become more familiar with University policy and procedure and attend your classes you will soon come to understand and use the relevant terms and phrases. Don't be afraid to ask when the meaning is unclear.

It is useful to refer to a list which explains many of the key terms used at UTAS. This will give you more confidence in understanding and navigating your way through the University environment.

Refer to Glossary of UTAS Terminology (PDF 35.5KB). If you encounter terms that are not on the list, don't be afraid to ask fellow students and staff what they mean!
