Accessibility statement

This accessibility statement applies to the website of the Hochschule Niederrhein, which can be accessed via the initial link

The Hochschule Niederrhein strives to make its website accessible in accordance with national legislation implementing Directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and of the Council on barrier-free access to the websites and mobile applications of public sector bodies.

Creation of this accessibility statement

This statement was created on March 2, 2021.

Our website has been independently audited via BITV test by third party Academic Hero according to WCAG 2.1.

The statement was last checked on March 2, 2021.

Status of compatibility with the requirements

This website is partially compliant with the Federal and State Disability Equality Acts (BGG & LGG), the Barrier-Free Information Technology Ordinance (BITV) and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1.


The Hochschule Niederrhein has a very extensive website of at least several hundred web pages. The majority of the pages were published before September 23, 2018. However, due to the disproportionate burden under federal and state equal opportunity laws, the website is not yet fully accessible. The technical implementation will be carried out successively.
