Declaration of Accessibility

We strive to make this website accessible. The declaration of accessibility is required by the Bremen Equal Opportunities for Disabled Persons Act (BremBGG) The technical requirements for accessibility are derived from the Barrier-Free Information Technology Ordinance (BITV 2.0).

This declaration on digital accessibility applies to the website, which is part of the University of Bremen’s COME AS YOU ARE student campaign.

How accessible is the site?

This site is largely barrier-free. The requirements according to BITV 2.0 are largely met. The verification of compliance with the requirements is based on a self-assessment of the website conducted on May 20, 2022.

Which areas are not barrier-free / accessible?
