If you are even just a little bit curious about Sign Language, then we are the society for you!

You can have lessons on campus with fully qualified teachers and even take your British Sign Language (BSL) Level 1. We also run informal, student-led lessons, where you can learn basic BSL, practise what you know and meet others in the society.

Learning BSL is fun, useful and gives access to a whole community you otherwise may not be able to communicate with. People who are deaf are always really touched by others who take time to learn their language. Not only is it a valued skill in the work place, a BSL certificate is nationally recognised and really stands out on CVs, opening up a whole new range of opportunities.

As well as lessons, we also organise brilliant socials like trips to see deaf theatre productions and film screenings, and offer opportunities to volunteer in assisting deaf UCL students or the local deaf community.

So join up, get involved and stand out!
