Deafness Cognition and Language Research Centre


Weekly taught modules for professionals and non-UCL students

Are you interested in deafness cognition and language; deaf culture and deafhood; or sign language linguistics - but not necessarily to enrol in a UCL degree? 

Do you want to know more about:

  • what the study of deaf people can add to our understanding of cognition and language?
  • deaf identity and what it means to be a deaf person in the 21st century?
  • how sign languages are structured and used, and to what extent they are the same as / different from spoken languages?

Would you be able to commit 2 hours per week for lectures and up to 6 hours per week of study during term time?

Come and join our weekly taught modules!

When do the modules run?

There will be lectures and group discussions on a variety of issues.

You would be taught alongside UCL students as part of a timetabled module.

Teaching takes place at UCL Chandler House, 2 Wakefield St, Kings Cross, London WC1N.

Cost: Approximately £700 without assessments and £900, with assessments (to be confirmed). This includes (for the term you are enrolled):

  • Same access to Chandler House as UCL-enrolled students
  • Online digital resources for your module via UCL eXtend
  • Access to UCL wifi
  • Physical and online access to UCL Library resources
  • Assessment (optional) – this would require an additional 70 hours of reading/study/revision.

Course completion: You would receive a formal UCL certificate of attendance (e.g. for Continuing Professional Development purposes), with marks achieved in assessment if you choose to be assessed.
