School of Slavonic & East European Studies
Central, Eastern, South-Eastern Europe, Russia and Eurasia play host to some of the most significant cultural, political, social and economic developments in modern history. The UCL School of Slavonic and East European

Our faculty are uniquely distinguished in their research, teaching and professional activities and so we can offer distinctive BA, MA

At SSEES we also lead the inter-university Centre for East European Language Based Area Studies (CEELBAS), the International Masters in Economy, State, and Society (IMESS), participate in the largest social sciences FP7 network project, ANTICORRP and run the UCL Mellon Programme.
