This accessibility statement applies to the Staffordshire University website at www.staffs.ac.uk. Websites on other domains and subdomains have their own accessibility statement available directly from those sites.
This website is run by Staffordshire University. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
change colours, contrast levels and fonts
zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
We are currently in the process of redesigning and migrating our website to a new platform and know some parts of the legacy website are not fully accessible:
Some pages may have minor accessibility issues, although the critical content of the page should still be accessible. Please contact us if you find a specific issue that means you cannot access a piece of information.
We are also aware there are some remaining issues with the website on the new platform:
The whole page is contained in a form. This is a limitation of our Content Management System, but forms in the page content can be navigated to via landmarks.
Some links are identified only by colour, but we aim to fix this by June 2020.
If you need information on this website in a different format like accessible PDF, large print, easy read, audio recording or braille:
call +44 (0)1782 294000
We’ll consider your request and get back to you in 2 working days.
We’re always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems not listed on this page or think we’re not meeting accessibility requirements, contact the Web Team in Marketing and Communications via email@example.com

Staffordshire University is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
There are some minor colour contrast issues, mainly in key course information. We aim to resolve these by June 2020.
Some forms are built and hosted through third party software, but we try to minimise this for essential services. These forms may not meet certain Level AA accessibility criteria.
Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs containing information on university policies and academic regulations. By September 2020, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. For example, we do not plan to fix [example of non-essential document].
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
We periodically review the accessibility of our website using auditing tools such as Siteimprove. As the content on the university website is devolved to numerous web authors throughout the institution, we also train and advise those staff on best practice for creating accessible content.
