Compliance status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

On the “Welcome” page, there is a grey bar that runs horizontally across the page which is distracting. In addition, it causes contrast issues.  This fails WCAG 1.4.3 Contrast minimum (AA).

Low contrast sections where users need to select continue when moving onto the next section of the course. This fails WCAG 1.4.3 Contrast minimum (AA).

Screen readers may not read all the titles due to heading settings. This fails WCAG 2.4.6 Headings and Labels (AA).

The quiz does not work with a screen reader and the keyboard instructions are difficult to follow. This fails WCAG 1.3.1 Info and Relationships (A).

Hazard category does not work well for low-vision users. This fails WCAG 1.3.1 Info and Relationships (A).

Accidents and Incidents – the continue button is identified via JAWS but once clicked no other information is given. It just says ‘scenario group’ repeatedly. This fails WCAG 1.3.1 Info and Relationships (A).

Emergencies - The phone test does not work for the mobility impaired, or for the blind. The post it cannot be read out by the screen reader. The form field list makes no sense as a standalone guide. This fails WCAG 1.3.1 Info and Relationships (A).

If you find an issue that we have yet to identify, please contact us using one of the routes described in the ‘Reporting accessibility problems with this website’ section of this statement.

Disproportionate burden

At this time, we have not made any disproportionate burden claims.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

This section covers issues that we do not need to fix right now. The law calls these exemptions.

Third-party content

Our websites contain third-party content. We do not have control over and are not responsible for the accessibility of this content, but we make best endeavours to work with the third-party to improve its accessibility. This may include:

  • links to non-UCL websites
  • content/functionality on our website
  • content hosted on other websites, such as social media sites.

To help accessibility compliance across the sector, University College London supports searchBOX , a centralised, independent directory of third-party accessibility information. 

searchBOX catalogues the contact information and accessibility statements of third-party suppliers, enables the sharing of community-generated accessibility statements, and allows users to map their supplier ecosystem. 

Users can access third-party accessibility statements using the free searchBOX Finder service. 

University College London encourages all our partners and suppliers to support this effort by ensuring that their accessibility information is included in the searchBOX directory. 

Our testing processes

We tested the website using a combination of manual and automated checks alongside reference to the existing conformance reports provided by suppliers. If you find an issue we have not yet identified, you can report it to us. We’ll pass this information to the website owner who will review the issue, make sure it is included in our plan to fix issues and add it into the accessibility statement when it is next updated.
