Here is a message from Rachel O’Neill of the University of Edinburgh
I am delighted to announce that the University of Edinburgh will be running a Summer School for deaf students on Tuesday 10th and Wednesday 11th August 2021! This is an exciting opportunity for deaf young people to find out more about different aspects of University life such as applying to the University, funding information and learning about different University services that are available to them as a university student.
The summer school will be delivered online through Zoom and is free for deaf students from all over the UK in S5/S6 (Year 12/13 in England/Wales or Year 13/14 in Northern Ireland) at school or college.
More information is available on our BSL Plan webpage – https://www.ed.ac.uk/about/british-sign-language-plan/summer-school – please feel free to disseminate among your networks and social media platforms where applicable.
Applications are now open and if anyone is interested or has any questions, they can get in touch with me directly on [email protected]. Places are limited, and the deadline for applications is Thursday 5th August at 5pm.
