Leeds Beckett University is committed to creating a unique online user experience that is accessible to disabled people and compliant with the WAI's accessibility guidelines (WCAG 2.0).

We have taken a number of steps to ensure that our pages are as accessible as possible to everyone which you can find detailed below. If you have any specific feedback or problems when accessing any of our pages, please let us know at

Our aim is to meet AA accessibility compliance by September 2020 in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Access Keys

In a web browser, an access key or accesskey allows a computer user immediately to jump to a specific part of a web page via the keyboard. They were introduced in 1999 and quickly achieved near-universal browser support. It is worth bearing in mind that access keys are different on all browsers and platforms so we recommend reviewing this table first:

Tab Index Mapping

Pressing the tab key usually highlights each link on a page in the order that they appear. We have applied tab indexing on our homepage to highlight some of the most important functions such as the global navigation, course search, site search, and order a prospectus.
