The Business School follows the University’s formal policy on website accessibility, and is committed to ensuring that its websites are accessible to the widest possible audience, including disabled users.
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.
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.
Report an Accessibility Problem
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.
To report an accessibility problem or provide feedback, please contact the Business School Web Team.
For additional guidance on reporting inaccessible websites, see the W3C’s Web Accessibility Initiative Guidance.
Requesting web content in alternative formats
Please note that if you require any content or web related resources such as media, documents or downloads in an alternative format please contact our Web Team at email@example.com.
