How we tested this website

This website was last tested on 13 December 2023. The test was carried out in-house using the Lighthouse, an automated tool which performs audits of web pages in several different areas including accessibility. Some manual inspections of the pages were also performed on recommendation from Lighthouse as automated tools cannot assess the full extent of a website’s accessibility.

What we are doing to improve accessibility 

We release changes to the UofG Life app and website on a regular basis, which may include accessibility fixes identified by you or us.
