Accessibility

To comply with the Equality Act 2010, UCL is required to make reasonable adjustments to cater for staff and students with disabilities to ensure they can access the services and opportunities offered.

This compliance involves not only reacting to the needs of individuals on request, but also trying to anticipate their needs. Adjustments are often simple and this guidance will help you create clear and well designed communications for all your audiences. We encourage you to use our UCL branded templates and website content management system as a starting point.

The creating accessible content page is a great resource for learning how to make any kind of content accessible - be it teaching materials, documents or blog posts.
