Students entering SSEES Student Researching Return of President Masaryk to King's College, 24 October 1923

UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES) will be celebrating its
centenary in 2015. One hundred years after Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk, who later became
the first President of Czechoslovakia, delivered the lecture that inaugurated the School, we
now stand as a world-leading institution specialising in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe, Russia and the former Soviet Union.

These pages celebrate our achievements, looking both back and forward at SSEES’s success. A host of events will commemorate the occasion, aimed to reflect the diversity of
the School’s activities and the countries of the SSEES region.
