Publishing guides and design suppliers
Guides to make sure you stay consistent with University style and details of designers on the University framework.
Editorial style guide
This style guide is a reference tool for University staff, external suppliers, and freelance copyeditors.
It outlines the English standard for all online and printed University publications, including brochures, prospectuses, reports, and the media.*
*All University publications do not currently adhere strictly to these new guidelines. It is our intention to update our publications as and when they are up for renewal in the publishing timetable.
Print and design suppliers information
The University has procurement frameworks in place for both print and design services.
Before accessing either framework you should determine whether an internal service provider in the University can do the work required:
- Information Services: Graphic Design Service
- Printing Services
- Communications and Marketing: Publications
If they are unable to help you then you should use the frameworks to buy the print or design services you need.
Please see our photography resources for our image bank and consent forms.
Alternate document formats
The University has an ethical and legal responsibility under the Disability Discrimination Act to provide all its documents in alternative formats upon request.
Information Services have produced a guide that details the standard text to appear on documents and how to provide alternate formats if requested.
