UEA British Sign Language Society


Who are we?

Taught by 3 enthusiastic signers, our society offers students the chance to learn basic British Sign Language. We offer weekly beginners and intermediate classes. This is the perfect chance to learn from scratch or build confidence with any pre-existing BSL skills you have! It is a fun and relaxed student led society that allows us to share our passion with others.

Pick it up in your own time, advance at your own pace and find out how to gain a qualification in British Sign Language. For any information about qualifications please send us a message!

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

When do we meet?


We meet every Tuesday for taught sessions from 5.30 -7pm on UEA campus – the first hour is for the beginners, where each session has a different topic such as food, animals. The last half an hour is for the intermediate session, where you can put your newly learnt signs into conversational practice. Anyone is welcome to stay for the whole session and catch up video's are on the UEA BSL YouTube chanel for optional catch up

We also meet casually throughout the academic year through local events such as Norfolk Deaf Festival, Disability Pride and society socials. Keep an eye out for these amazing opportunities and social events; they are an opportunity to practice signing and meet friends for life.
