Welcome to the UCL SSEES Alumni space. I am formally Emeritus Professor of Russian Literature and Culture, but perhaps my main qualification for the role of President of SSEES alumni is my long association with SSEES.

Faith Wigzell

I first arrived at SSEES as a wet-behind-the-ears provincial ex-schoolgirl half a century ago. Over the years, I have seen SSEES grow and change and watched many students pass through its doors. Like my colleagues I like to hear how they have prospered after SSEES. I hope my long experience at SSEES and my interest in what has happened to you will help bring the community closer together.

These alumni pages are informational but also include items about SSEES past and present, which we hope you will enjoy and some which should bring back memories.
I look forward to seeing some of you at events and please do contact us at

UCL SSEES needs you

We want to make sure that our students have the best possible educational experience and are eager to maintain and enhance our reputation for research excellence. We have expert staff delivering world-leading teaching and conducting cutting edge research, but they need to have the best resources available to them.

You can help to provide this by making a gift to your department. Your generosity will provide us with a source of income which can be used to respond to needs and opportunities as and when they arise. From supporting student scholarships to investing in new facilities, 100% of your gift will be directed to areas of the greatest importance within the department.
