The University’s commitment to accessibility
Victoria University of Wellington is committed to making its home web site accessible according to the standards set forth by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). As we make improvements to our site, we endeavour to ensure that such improvements conform to these accessibility standards.

Resizing text on the site
The home site now allows you to display text at the size you prefer. How to do this varies from browser to browser. In Internet Explorer 5+ on the PC, and a number of other common browsers, you can do this by going to the View menu, selecting “Text Size”, and then choosing the text size you prefer. Other browsers have similar, but not identical, commands, such as “Text Zoom”.
