Legal requirements for accessibility

It is a legal requirement under the Equality Act 2010 that web sites be usable by users with disabilities. Students (and applicants) with disabilities have legal protection from discrimination, as do employees of the university and people that the University provides services to - for example conference guests or business partners.

There is a requirement for reasonable adjustments to be made to ensure that no-one is treated less favourably than someone else for a reason related to his or her disability without justification.
