About

The UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES) is UK's largest institution for research and teaching on Russia, the Baltics, and Central, East and South-East Europe. The Slavonic and East European Studies MPhil/PhD programme is offered by University College London (UCL).

Overview

The mission of this Slavonic and East European Studies MPhil/PhD programme from University College London (UCL) is to foster cross-disciplinary approaches to area studies, using expertise in our primary geographical region to generate knowledge and understanding of the broader world. 

With our spectacular library and award-winning building in the heart of London, and at the centre of a vibrant network of national and international connections, SSEES provides a unique and dynamic environment where students acquire the expertise and skills that employers want, including an unparalleled range of languages.

Careers

SSEES graduates have found employment in academic posts, as lecturers, teaching fellows and postdoctoral researchers at leading UK and overseas universities, as well as in research and consultancy roles for public, private and third-sector organisations, including think tanks, government departments, interpreting and publishing groups and market research and business intelligence companies.

Employability

  • SSEES graduates have a unique range of expertise, grounded in advanced methodological training in their chosen discipline and applied to the area studies context. 
  • This hybrid profile, which can also include knowledge of one or more languages, is highly sought after by employers as it offers expertise which is intellectually rigorous as well as empirically relevant.
