Dear Falmouth University,

I have identified that you have claimed disproportionate burden under the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) Accessibility Regulations 2018, within your published accessibility statement.

https://www.falmouth.ac.uk/accessibility...

Please could you provide me a copy of all completed disproportionate burden assessments or other related documentation detailing how you reached your conclusions of disproportionate burden for each of the issues mentioned in your statement.

I would appreciate this information in a computer readable format as I use assistive technology so any format besides a scanned PDF is preferable please.

I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind Regards,
Winston Smith
