The European Deaf Students’ Union, in short EDSU, is an European non-profit independent organisation with a society where sign language users and deaf people have an equal status and are recognised as full citizens in their own right. Sign language, Deaf culture, and the Deaf community should be fully accepted as being part of our rich European heritage.


Our mission exists to represent deaf student organisations at European level and to promote, advance, protect rights, and opportunities for deaf students in Europe.
