What do we call faculty and what is a department at HSD? What does 'Hochschulzugangsberechtigung' mean in English?

HSD Dictionary – the HSD-specific online dictionary (German<>English) – provides answers to such questions. Developed by the English Language Manager together with the Campus IT, it is accessible only for HSD employees. The dictionary contains over 4000 terms related to HSD and academia as well as approx. 3000 module names – and it is constantly growing.
