Course summary

The Interpreting (BSL/English) plus foundation degree is a four year course and, for the final three years of study, follows the same aims, content and professional accreditation as the Interpreting (BSL/English) degree. These pages will give you specific information about the first year of study. The extra year of study on this course enables students with no or little prior knowledge of sign language to develop the skills they need for the BA (Hons) Interpreting (BSL/English) degree. Some of our students have already achieved a basic BSL qualification, but choose this route in order to gain confidence and a deeper knowledge of the language. In one academic year, students will be guided from Basic through to Intermediate Sign Language and will cover a range of topics including environmental and political issues, travel, and health. Students are given the time and support to develop both expressive and receptive skills, with considerable focus placed on understanding and applying essential grammatical structures. Experienced and enthusiastic teaching staff use a range of interactive and innovative teaching and learning methods in class and online, and students also have the opportunity to attend interpreted theatre performances and other cultural events. An enhanced DBS is required prior to attending the final year work placement modules
