Student Feedback Survey accessibility statement

Using this website

The Student Feedback Survey website is run by the University of Derby. We want as many people as possible to be able to use the site and are committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities. For example, that means you should be able to: 

  • Zoom in up to 200% without the text spilling off the screen 
  • Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard 
  • 'Skip to main content' using tab on your keyboard 

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability. AbilityNet is a UK charity that exists to change the lives of disabled people by helping them to use digital technology at work, at home or in education.
