Digital accessibility

As a university, we think it is important that our website is accessible to everyone. Also for visitors with disabilities. That is why we want and to comply with WCAG, an international standard for digital accessibility. Some 4 million Dutch people have a disability that affects the way they use the internet. Think of people who are blind or visually impaired, or unable to use a mouse. Nowadays, mobile phones, computers and the internet are no longer luxuries, but necessities to participate independently in society. That is why, as a university, we want to be accessible to everyone online.
