BSL Society

Big Society of the Year 2022!

Society of the Month January 2023!


British Sign Language (BSL) Society is a society for students who are deaf, hard of hearing, learning or interested in BSL. Our primary focus is to connect students with others who are able to communicate in BSL and will provide a platform for many to practise their BSL and meet others with similar experiences of being a young person who is hard of hearing/deaf. In doing so we hope to create a student led community to support Deaf Culture.

We are primarily made up of students who wish to improve their skills in sign language and be able to use it in conversation. If you have no previous experience in BSL we hold student led practise session to cover the basics, or to improve your confidence. Please note all teaching is informal and does not hold any official qualification.

If you are looking to gain official qualifications in BSL we promote the Deaf Friendly Business Solutions course offered at a reduced price through the Student’s Union!

We meet regularly on Thursdays, but often in a range of different locations and times where BSL is encouraged to practised as the primary language. We hold a range of socials in line with COVID-19 guidance, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic ranging from bowling to parties.

We also run Sign Lanuage Cafes at the weekend for members to practice having signed conversations in real world situations. 

We are a very friendly bunch, who would love to see you join our society. So, if you have any questions please feel free to contact any of the members of the committee. 

Please log in to view the committee.
