Accessibility Statement for the MA Graphic Media Design website
This website is run by the MA Graphic Media Design course team at London College of Communication, University of the Arts London (UAL). This accessibility statement applies to www.magmd.uk. Other UAL websites have their own accessibility statements.
We commit to ensuring this website is as accessible as possible and we want as many people as possible to be able to use it. This means that you should be able to:

- zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
- navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
- navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
- listen to most of the website using a screen reader
We have also tried to make the website text as easy to understand as possible although we recognise we have more work to do on this.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
UAL is committed to making its website 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 listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
Some images may not have alternative (alt) text descriptions while other decorative and spacer images may not have null alternative text. This fails WCAG Success Criterion 1.1.1 Non-text Content (Level A). We plan to add alt text to all of our images before September 2021.
Content that’s not within scope of the accessibility regulations
None of the documents published on our website before 23 September 2018 are accessible. We are not required to make these documents accessible as they are not needed for active administrative processes. Please contact us if you need an accessible version of any of these documents.
