Users & Functions



This tool has been designed for internal users (academic and research staff, administrative and support staff, and students of the UGR) as well as for external users interested in the academic and institutional terminology used in the UGR and the context of higher education.


UGRTerm enables users to conduct simple and advanced searches, and terms can be searched alphabetically or by subject area. This flexibility allows users to access each term entry from different access points, depending on their user profile, needs and knowledge level. At the very least, each entry provides the official/standardized Spanish term used in the UGR (usage status) and its English correspondence. Furthermore, it often provides additional information regarding the type, meaning, and use of terms, including abbreviations, variants, definitions, contexts, etc. Users can also make suggestions regarding specific terms and internal users can also download a list of entries in Excel format.
