Web accessibility

Access is one of the University of Bedfordshire’s core values and we strive to make our web-based information accessible to all.

Web Accessibility Statement

The University’s website uses CSS (cascading style sheets) to separate the content from the style/design. This aids accessibility by making it easier for the user to read pages with assistive technologies.

We have also designed the site to be 'print friendly'. The left menu and horizontal navigation bar are excluded when you print a page.

The University recognises the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines as the standard against which accessibility should be assessed.
