SRUC Oatridge campus recognises the importance of providing a website that is accessible to all our user groups, including those with disabilities. Our accessibility standards are in place with the intention of making the content accessible to the widest range of visitors, regardless of disability or impairment. This has been achieved by adhering to best practices, such as compliance with W3C standards, and by careful reference to the standards set out by the eGovernment Unit.
