We are delighted that our British Sign Language (BSL) programme, led by Graham Turner, Professor of Translation and Interpreting Studies, scooped the Guardian University Award 2017 for Social and Community Impact last week!

The award recognises the significant role of BSL research taking place at Heriot-Watt and its impact in communities across the UK and beyond. The Guardian University Awards 2017 showcases some of the great work carried out by UK universities.
