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, please update your details with UCL Alumni. 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.

We love hearing from former students, so please feel free to contact us at c.roland@ucl.ac.uk.

Alumni Events

Alongside the biannual talks that take place at SSEES for Alumni (almost always followed by a party), the SSEES Alumni Association often organises less formal events to exhibitions, film screenings, opera and other various East European and Russian-related happenings in and around London.
