British Sign Language

The BSL Plan has been developed to enhance and develop further accessibility to the University for BSL users. The Plan has four main aims:

  • Improving access to information and services on campus for BSL users
  • Engaging with local and national partners to increase training and support for BSL interpreters
  • Engaging with school pupils and their families to ascertain support required
  • Ensuring the views of BSL users inform the development and review of the Plan

Working in partnership with staff, students and external contacts will be key to the success of the Plan, particularly as BSL interpretation services are limited in the north-east of Scotland.

The University’s response to Deaf Action’s request for an update on the implementation of its BSL Plan can be found here.

If you would like to contribute to the British Sign Language Plan Working Group or provide feedback on the BSL Action Plan, please contact the Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion team. BSL users can contact us via Contact Scotland BSL.
