Standards and guidelines

We have a responsibility to comply with web standards. This includes internal guidelines and processes, as well as nationally and internationally recognised standards. Compliance ensures that our website is of a consistent quality, is well-managed, and is both usable and accessible to the widest possible audience.

Content that violates the University Guidelines may be amended or removed from the website, so this information acts as an important resource to ensure compliance is met.
