Accessibility and alternative formats
The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 requires that the University, as a service provider, takes reasonable steps to ensure that all printed material and marketing activities are accessible to people with disabilities.
We aim to follow best practice. We have chosen typefaces for their legibility and have suggested ways to help determine sufficient contrast when choosing colour schemes here.
Some documents may need to be made available in plain text formats and at larger sizes. Every publication must include information about how to obtain versions in alternative formats. An example of wording used in our student recruitment publications is:
The ideal position for this statement would usually be on the final text page, inside back cover or back cover. Font size should be a minimum of 12pt.
All printed materials which contain course or fee information must include the University’s ‘Important information’ legal disclaimer. Contact faculty or central marketing teams, or the Communications Production team for the most recent version.
The ideal position for this statement is usually inside front cover and/or as near to any course or financial information as possible. If this is not possible it can be placed on the inside back cover. Font size should be the same as the body copy.
