British Sign Language Level 1 Classes

(25 October 2019)

British Sign Language society is organising Level 1 courses in BSL this year, and we have a few spaces left in the Thursday 9-11am class. The course is open to staff and students, and the lessons will be weekly - classes start next week! (W/C October 28) Contact us at with any questions, or to reserve your place.

Our Level 1 BSL course is provided by an external company, and is taught by a deaf teacher. The lessons occur weekly in Meeting Room 1 in the DSU. However, lessons will break for Christmas/Easter, so only take place during term time. After Easter, there will be the opportunity to sit three short exams. Successful completion of these exams will result in being awarded a recognised Level 1 qualification in British Sign Language. The cost of the course is £97 a term, with the third termly payment covering all exam fees. If you wish to take one of the few remaining spaces please contact us at
