Get ‘Hands-On’ with UEA British Sign Language Society


Who are we?

Taught by three qualified and enthusiastic signers, our society offers the chance to learn basic British Sign Language. We offer a beginners' class and this year we are planning to start intermediate sessions for anyone already skilled in BSL or looking to practice.

Pick it up in your own time and advance at your own pace and find out how to gain a qualification in British Sign Language.

It's a fun and relaxed way to learn a new skill!

* Please note: Qualifications are not awarded in the society. *

When do we meet?


We meet every Tuesday for taught sessions from 5-7pm on UEA campus – the first hour is beginner teaching and the second hour is for the intermediate session but anyone is welcome to join both!


We also meet casually throughout the academic year through local events and socials.
