Accessibility statement

We believe everyone deserves equal opportunities to learn and grow. By making our website and digital resources accessible, we ensure that all our visitors can benefit from what we have to offer. Moreover, by doing so, we comply with legal requirements and ethical standards that ensure equal access to information and services.

Digital accessibility

As a university, we think it is important that our website is accessible to everyone. Also for visitors with a disability. This is why we want to comply with WCAG, an international standard for digital accessibility. Around 4 million Dutch people have a disability that affects the way they use the internet. For example: people who are blind or visually impaired, or unable to use a mouse. Nowadays, mobile phones, computers and the internet are no longer a luxury, but a necessity for participating independently in society. Therefore, as a university of applied sciences, we want to be accessible for everyone online.
