    How to use this site


    Oxford Brookes University is committed to providing a website that is accessible to people of all abilities.  In accordance with the Equality Act (2010) and the Special Education Needs and Disability Act (2001), we also have a legal duty to ensure the University's websites are accessible to everyone.

    We are continually making enhancements to meet the guidelines in the W3C's Accessibility Initiative Guidelines.  Some of our older pages do not meet these checkpoints but we are working towards making these and all future web pages compliant to Level AA or Level AAA if possible.

    There are times when we are unable to develop pages that are accessible to everyone, in the meantime, should you experience any difficulty in accessing the University’s websites or if you have any questions or suggestions please do not hesitate to contact us by emailing
