Supplementary information

The University of Girona is working to comply with accessibility requirements to the utmost degree to facilitate the universal access for everyone who consults it, irrespective of their physical, sensory or learning capacities, and the systems or resources used (browser, device, connection speed, etc.)

Under the Directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 October 2016, public-sector websites and mobile apps have to be accessible, an accessibility that has to be achieved in accordance with the rule UNE - IN 301 549:2019, on accessibility requirements for ICT products and services. This rule bases mainly in the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) in August 2018.

It is the University of Girona’s intention to comply fully with the web accessibility guidelines. The European regulations require level AA compliance from public sector organisations.

This website has been tested and is optimised for HTML5-compatible browsers and manufacturer-accepted versions. Use of different browsers or versions not accepted by the manufacturers may not enable a correct display or availability of documents or other functions. Updates or browsers can be obtain from the browser providers’ webpages.

On the other hand, for the correct functioning of the website, the browser will have to enable the use of JavaScript and cookies (see the Cookies policy section).

Given the large number of documents put at the website's disposal, there may contents that do not meet the requisite accessibility guidelines. We are happy to receive any suggestions or comments through the channels stated in the “Presenting suggestions, complaints or claims” section.
