Accessibility

UNE aims to be as inclusive as possible, and this applies to our website, our facilities and our teaching and learning experiences. We want to enable everyone to participate fully in University life and community. We are committed to improving accessibility and welcome your feedback.

Web Accessibility

We are actively working to improve the accessibility and usability of our website and are following the Australian Federal Government's Digital Service Standard.

Possible issues:

  • The pages in our site are now WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) 2.0 AA compliant, but there is still content in the form of PDF documents. We are in the process of making this content more accessible.
  • We aim to communicate as simply and clearly as possible, but the site does contain terms that are specific to The University. We have provided a glossary that will help you with those terms.
  • You may experience issues with opening and filling out PDF files. We have provided a resource page for opening PDFs on the website

Let us know if you are having problems with our website. Please email webmaker@une.edu.au and give us your feedback. We welcome and will consider all constructive feedback. It is important that you give us enough information to help you. Contacting Organisations about Inaccessible Websites explains in detail the sorts of information that is helpful, but briefly we need to know which page was causing you problems, and what sort of problem (eg keyboard navigation, colour combinations, alt text) you were having.

Student Experience

UNE wants to enable students with a disability or health condition to successfully participate on the same basis as a student without a disability. Our Disability Support Office can help.
