When to use an image

Only use an image if it helps you to explain your content more clearly.

Images used to show University life should reflect the diversity of our staff and students.


When to avoid an image

You should avoid:

  • using images of text. Screen readers cannot access this information.
  • staged, stock images. You should use real, unposed images of the University where possible. Find out more about images on the brand resources website
  • using lots of images where one will suffice
  • manipulated or AI-generated images
