Handbook Terminology:

Generic skills

Generic skills relate to broad and measurable skills which university students might expect to develop/enhance throughout their university experience. These attributes, which cross disciplines, may include critical thinking, problem solving, communication skills and interpersonal understandings. A number of generic skills are measured in the Course Experience Questionnaire (CEQ) and the Graduate Skills Assessment (GSA).

Generic skills are sometimes referred to as 'graduate skills', 'graduate characteristics' or 'graduate attributes'.
