This website is run by the University of Glasgow. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

The University of Glasgow is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.
Some link text doesn’t make sense when read on its own (for example, ‘click here’). We use a quality assurance application to identify these links and inform content editors of the requirement to change these. There will be occassions, however, when these changes have not yet been made. We will monitor and correct such links on an ongoing basis.
Many of our older PDFs and Word documents don’t meet accessibility standards: for example, they may not be marked up so they’re accessible to a screen reader.
Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on how users can access our services, and forms published as Word documents. We plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
Some images don’t have appropriate alternative text. We use a quality assurance application to identify these images and inform content editors of the requirement to change these. There will be occasions, however, when these changes have not yet been made.
Some legacy video content doesn’t have captions.
Live video streams don’t have captions.
We don’t as yet plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
BSL users can contact us via contactSCOTLAND-BSL, the on-line British Sign Language interpreting video relay service.
Some of our interactive forms are difficult to navigate using a keyboard. For example, because some form controls are missing a ‘label’ tag.
Our forms are often built and hosted through third party software and ‘skinned’ to look like our website.
We plan to work with our suppliers to fix the issue with colour contrast by September 2020.
We’ve assessed the cost of fixing the issues with navigating the forms using a keyboard and believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. We will make another assessment when the supplier contract is up for renewal.
