Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences (HSRW) is committed to making its website accessible without barriers. Accordingly, the layout and design of our website should comply with German law with regard to the implementation of the accessibility guidelines (EU) 2016/2102 enacted by the European Parliament. The following accessibility declaration applies to the website and all of its subsections.

Current compliance with IT accessibility requirements

At the moment, the website is not fully compliant with the technical accessibility requirements set forth in the IT Accessibility Ordinance of North Rhine-Westphalia (Barrierefreie-Informationstechnik-Verordnung). HSRW is currently reviewing the accessibility of its entire website and preparing a comprehensive accessibility declaration.

Non-accessible content

HSRW is currently working to improve the accessibility of its website. This can sometimes involve changes to back-end programming. In addition, our website is currently undergoing a system upgrade and being prepared for a relaunch. As a result, HSRW kindly requests you have further patience with us as we address current accessibility issues. After we have completed the accessibility review, a full list of identified issues to be rectified will be posted here.
