As a university and community, we are committed to providing an equitable and inclusive experience for all students, staff, and visitors with disability at RMIT.
Under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and Disability Standards for Education 2005, RMIT is required to provide information, services and course materials that are accessible to the widest possible audience.
Students and staff can request a range of assistive technology for learning and work. Guidance is provided for staff to meet web accessibility requirements.
RMIT aims to exceed Double A compliance with Web content accessibility guidelines version 2.0 (WCAG 2.0) standard.
If you experience an accessibility problem with RMIT’s website please let us know. Contact the Service and Support Centre and describe where the problem occurred, what the problem is, what you were trying to do, and what computer and software you're using.
RMIT websites, apps and digital documents are created for flexible use on supporting devices. For example, you can enjoy RMIT websites on desktop computers and portable web-enabled devices like smart phones. You can also modify your device to suit your individual needs, such as making text larger and increasing contrast.

Captions are subtitles specifically designed to help people with impaired hearing. Captions show synchronised dialogue identifying speakers where needed, and describe important sounds. They are available as a screen overlay for many programs. Captions are mostly prepared in advance for accuracy. However sometimes conveying information fast is considered more important than absolute accuracy, such as breaking news.
While we’ve done a lot to ensure this site is accessibility, you may find some limitations:
If you find anything on the site difficult to use please contact us with details of your experience.
You can help get to the bottom of your difficulty faster by providing us with the information suggested in Contacting Organisations about Inaccessible Websites.
All constructive feedback regarding the accessibility or usability of this website is welcome and will be carefully considered.
