Welcome to Wikiversity's Tertiary Education Portal, an entry-point for Wikiversity's university-related content.

The words used to describe tertiary level education vary a lot from one country to another so here's a quick guide. Tertiary education is also known as third stage, third level, and post-secondary education and includes higher education and further education. It is the educational level following the completion of a school providing a secondary education, such as a high school or secondary school. Higher education is normally taken to include undergraduate and postgraduate education, while vocational education and training beyond secondary education is known as further education. Tertiary education may take place at colleges, universities, institutes of technology and polytechnics (among other institutions).

Wikiversity is by no means "only" a university in terms of its content - it is much more than this and its content extends to all educational levels from preschool through primary and secondary education. Wikiversity is definitely not a university in the administrative sense at all - for example, Wikiversity cannot confer degrees or offer credits, nor is Wikiversity affiliated with any traditional accredited university. Wikiversity is simply the Wikimedia Foundation's project for global learning.
