The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’).

Student Services at the University of Hull 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 and exemptions listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
We embed YouTube videos on the site. We know there are accessibility issues with this.
The video controls do not have enough contrast. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.11 (non-text contrast).
Some video controls have a tooltip which does not stay open when moving the cursor to them. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.13 (content on hover or focus).
We don't have accessible alternatives and, as we don't control the platform, are unable to make the changes required to improve them.
Let us know if you would like an accessible version of any video we put live using the aforementioned contact details, and we will send them through to you.
We know that the sign-up form embedded on the site is not accessible, due to missing labels, a lack of autocomplete attributes, and the inability to resize content. It also struggles with Input Assistance, Error Identification, a lack of Labels and Instructions, and Error Suggestions.
We believe that fixing the content now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations, as we are looking to migrate our forms to a new platform within the next year.
The embedded video on the site does not have captions, however pre-recorded content published before the 23rd of September 2020 is not within the scope of the regulations.
We are working through the issues detailed above to resolve them by the end of 2020.
We are working towards full level AA compliance.
