BSL Society

Big Society of the Year 2022!

Society of the Month January 2023!

Society of the Year Activity & Appreciation 2023!


Welcome to the British Sign Language (BSL) Society webpage! We are a student led community connecting students who can communicate in BSL and providing a platform to practise BSL in an informal setting.


We are made up of students who are deaf, hard of hearing, learning or interested in BSL and welcome all levels of signing proficiency. Many of our members are students who are new to BSL or want to improve their sign language skills. We hold fun student led practise sessions for students to learn and recap BSL whilst building confidence.


Please note: As all teaching is informal, our sessions do not lead to an official qualification. If you are looking to gain official qualifications in BSL we promote the 'British Sign Language Level 1' course which is offered through the Student’s Union.


We also hold a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic socials so there's fun for everyone - from pub and club trips, to BSL signing cafes to our coveted end of year Ball.


Join us!

We would love you to come along to one of our sessions and join our society!
