An artist’s rendition of a ‘Bec Jaune’

BEJANT n. a first-year student

A bejant is a first-year student at a Scottish university, now most commonly St Andrews.  The origin of the word is interesting; it is derived from the French ‘bejaune’ which in turn is a contraction of ‘bec jaune’ meaning yellow beak, a young bird: hence a novice or inexperienced person.
