Accessibility on this website

The University is committed to making its website and the material provided on it accessible to as many people as possible. We have attempted to follow relevant standards and good practice for accessibility and usability while developing the University website, including the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

We try to make our website compatible with as many browsers as possible, but you may see inconsistencies in the presentation of pages if you are using an older browser.

If you have problems accessing information or if you prefer information in a different format, please email us at

Adjusting text size

You can increase or reduce the text size by using your browser's zoom function.  On most browsers:

  • pressing the Control and + keys together will increase the size of the page
  • pressing the Control and - keys together will decrease the size of the page
  • pressing the Control and 0 keys together will return the page size to the original

On a Macintosh computer, you should use the 'Command' key instead of 'Control' in these combinations.

If this does not work on your browser, please consult your browser's help pages.  Or consult one of the websites which specialise in showing you the best way to adjust your computer to suit you. Such as:
