Course summary

Poland, with nearly 39 million citizens, is an increasingly important actor on the world economic and political stage. This programme offers the opportunity to gain excellent language skills and a profound knowledge of Polish literature, history and culture that will prepare you for a wide variety of careers in Europe.

Degree benefits

  • You will gain a thorough grounding in the Polish language and culture, supplemented by a choice of optional culture, history and social science modules.

  • The UCL School of Slavonic & East European Studies (SSEES) is the largest national centre in the UK for the study of Central, Eastern and South-East Europe and Russia. The SSEES Library contains over 400,000 books, journals and film resources.

  • You will benefit from frequent visits and lectures by prominent political, artistic and academic figures—ambassadors, foreign ministers, professors and writers.
