Course content

The Politics and Economics of Eastern Europe MRes is a research training degree in methods and approaches for studying politics, economics and society in post-communist Europe including Russia and other post-Soviet states. The MRes is recognised by the Economic and Social Research Council and forms part of our one and three year programmes.

The UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES) is a world-leading specialist institution, and the largest national centre in the UK, for the study of Central, Eastern and South Eastern Europe and Russia.

Located on the edge of Bloomsbury, SSEES offers an ideal location for scholars: the British Library, British Museum, University of London Library and other similar research centres are all close by.

The SSEES library is unequalled in Britain for the depth and breadth of its collections, the majority of which are on open access in the SSEES building.
