UCL School of Slavonic & East European Studies (SSEES)
The UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES) is the world’s leading institution for research and teaching on Russia, the Baltics, and Central, Eastern and South-East Europe. The School’s mission is to foster cross-disciplinary approaches to area studies, using expertise in our primary geographical region to generate knowledge and understanding of the broader world. Our work is organized into four interrelated programmes: Economics and Business; History; Languages and Culture; Politics and Sociology. With our spectacular library and award-winning building in the heart of London, at the centre of a vibrant network of national and international connections, SSEES provides a unique and dynamic environment where students acquire the expertise and skills that employers want, including an unparalleled range of languages.
SSEES also leads the inter-university Centre for East European Language Based Area Studies (CEELBAS), the International Masters in Economy, State, and Society (IMESS), participates in the FP7 network project, ANTICORRP, funds the FRINGE Centre and runs the UCL Mellon Programme.
The impact of globalisation processes and economic integration on the internationalisation of higher education has mainly been discussed with respect to students and their mobility to date. Less attention has been devoted to academics and scientists themselves as the producers of knowledge and providers of educational services, despite the fact that academic careers have long been associated with high levels of geographical mobility.
