UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES)



Estonian is offered at postgraduate level or as evening classes at UCL SSEES.

Estonian is the language of around one million people, mostly living in the Republic of Estonia. It belongs to the Finno-Ugric group of the Uralic language family. Its closest major relative is Finnish. It is written in the Roman alphabet and its spelling is very regular. Estonia’s turbulent history, involving domination at various times by Germans, Swedes and Russians, is reflected in the modern language. Estonia lies on the Baltic coast of northern Europe and is an important part of the IMESS MA degree programme. Our courses provide an introduction to Estonian language, culture and history


Estonian can be taken as an elective module for all SSEES MA programmes, as well as for a number of other Postgraduate Taught degrees in other UCL departments.
