Kingston University commissioned Manifesto Digital to undertake a comprehensive audit of the www.kingston.ac.uk website in December 2021. The audit included a technical review of our bespoke content management system, as well as user experience and website accessibility. The report concluded that a full redesign and rebuild of our website was strongly recommend on a new content management system.
As a result of the Manifesto audit, Kingston University has secured approval and funding, and work has already started on an initial Discovery and Strategy project to help identify and establish the foundations for a new University website expected within 24 months, with the requirement to be fully compliant with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.1 AA standard.
Throughout the development of the new website we will continue to prioritise and redevelop sections of the University's website to improve accessibility and usability and we use Axe DevTools and Silktide to regularly test the website for any accessibility issues against Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.1 AA standard.
