The White Rose Doctoral Training Centre is fully committed to making its web pages accessible to all.

The Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C) has produced guidelines for making web content accessible to people with disabilities. Pages within our Content Management System are designed to meet a general standard of AA compliance with these guidelines. However, we have made some informed deviations from W3C guidelines based on the advice of bodies such as the Royal National Institute of the Blind (RNIB) and the Disability Rights Commission (which has now been absorbed into the Equality and Human Rights Commission), for example appropriately tagged tables are used in this site for layout purposes. Visual layout is achieved primarily through style sheets, so users can apply their own styles to the site as needed.

Our aim is to meet the accepted standards and guidelines – if you come across a part of our site that is difficult to use, we apologise and would be grateful if you could email us at Your feedback is an invaluable part of the process of improving our site.
