Technical information about the website's accessibility
The University of Sheffield is committed to making its websites accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
User generated content: Some of the content on this website is generated and uploaded by individual users and as a result is not fully accessible.

Content that's not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
User generated content: Some of the content on this website is user-generated content that is not under our control and is therefore exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
