Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Ravensbourne University London is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance Status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to non-compliances.

We are currently reviewing the full scope of non-compliances and will aim to have a full list (below) by 31 October 2022. 

  • Issues with PDFs

    This website may contain PDF documents that are not able to comply with the requirements of the web accessibility standard. However, new PDFs will be created to the PDF/UA standard, which is more accessible.

    The accessibility regulations don’t require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. Where PDFs are no longer being updated, we do not intend to recreate them in accessible versions as this would be a disproportionate burden

    By September 2023, we intend to have completed the process of addressing PDFs used on the site to make these compliant.
