UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES)



Welcome to the SSEES Alumni webpage. In the last four years SSEES Alumni Association has grown, and its activities have multiplied. Fostering the wider SSEES community remains our key aim, and so, if you have come across this page and are not receiving regular communication from us, we would love to include you in our community. If you graduated since SSEES joined UCL, we evidently do not have an up-to-date email address for you. To rectify this situation click on the link below ‘Update your details’. If you were at SSEES when it was an independent entity within the University of London, you also need to register via the ‘Update your details’ link, as alumni details are held centrally in UCL.

2015 marked the centenary of the foundation of SSEES. A large range of activities took place, including a grand alumni dinner and a fund raising effort to support our current students with scholarships. We will be updating you shortly with the results of these and where your money will be going. Keep in touch to receive details of this as well as of our regular talks, parties and outings in London to events with an East European flavour. Registering will also bring our biannual newsletter UnSSEESing into your inbox. We hope to see you at an alumni event in the not too distant future.

To commemorate the centenary in 2015, the SSEES Student Committee produced scarves embroidered with ‘SSEES 100’. The Committee reproduced it from the traditional late 1950’s – 60’s SSEES university scarf.

They measure 180cm long and 28cm wide. They are sky blue with a yellow middle stripe and bordered with thin black stripes. Each scarf is made from 100% wool and produced in Cambridge, England by Luke Eyres.

The scarves can be purchased from the Admissions Office (room 309). Email l.bettiol@ucl.ac.uk to arrange to collect or have it posted.
