Why bother studying the Russian Federal Assembly? - 6.30pm, March 7 2019
The usual party afterwards will take place, with food and drink provided. We look forward to seeing many of you there! .
The SSEES Alumni Association organises biannual events based at SSEES, usually a talk followed by a party and the second, our East European Food and Drink Party. Alongside these, we often organise less formal events to exhibitions, film screenings, opera and other various East European and Russian-related happenings in and around London. The less formal London events tend to be advertised on our Facebook page, so please do join if you are a user.
Please note that anyone not registered as an alumni will not receive mailings about forthcoming events and booking details. If you were at SSEES when it was an independent entity within the University of London, you will still need to register with UCL to make sure you are on our mailing list. To update your details or register, please do so via the UCL Alumni Pages.
