Website Accessibility Statement

Saarland University is committed to delivering an access-for-all website that meets the legal requirements set out in Section 12a of the Saarland Disability Equality Act (SBGG). This statement on barrier-free digital accessibility applies to and all directly related web pages.

Compliance with accepted accessibility standards

The accessibility of the Saarland University website was assessed on 14 December 2020 by an independent third-party. The BIK evaluation report was issued on 18 February 2021. An assessment was conducted by Saarland's digital accessibility agency (Überwachungsstelle Digitale Barrierefreiheit Saarland) on 7 October 2021. The technical faults identified in the assessment have been rectified. We are working hard to rectify the remaining issues.
