Wrexham Glyndŵr University is committed to ensuring that its website is accessible to the widest possible audience, including disabled users.

The University is in the process of ensuring its pages comply with the AA standard of the W3C recommended version of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). The University acknowledges that this is an anticipatory and continuing work in progress and, in order to ensure no user is disadvantaged while this work is carried out, the University intends to respond to all requests for assistance with accessibility, by either altering the necessary content as soon as possible, or, if requested, by providing the information in an alternative format within a reasonable timeframe. 

The University will make reasonable adjustments to ensure specific individual needs that cannot be addressed by mainstreamed adjustments are met. Contact for help with this.
