University of Edinburgh Accessibility Policy

Website Standards Compliance

Our website is built using Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) according to World Wide Web Consortium (WC3) Standards.

It is designed to comply with our own accessibility standards, in line with recognised best practice – specifically, the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.


Customising Our Site

You can customise the appearance of our website to make it easier to read and navigate.

Display Settings

In order to make our website easier to read and navigate, you can change display settings such as:

  • Text size
  • Colour and Contrast
  • Screen Magnification
  • Style Sheets

Guidance on how to improve accessibility and customise your settings for internet browsers

Our site functions best in modern browsers such as Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Safari, or Firefox. Edge tends to be the most compatible with assistive software and does not require any plugins. For information on customising your settings, see the following guidance.

We would not recommend browsing our site using Internet Explorer as Microsoft only supports IE11 which is not capable of loading many of our site features.

Reporting your experience will help us further enhance the accessibility of our website. Please let us know if you encounter any problems, or if you find any of our features particularly useful.
