Course Summary

The University of Glasgow has a long history of research excellence related to the former socialist countries of Central and Eastern Europe following the establishment of the Department for the Study of the Social and Economic Institutions of the USSR during the late 1940s. We have a dynamic and thriving PhD student community which plays a significant role in the research activities of the subject area. Our students regularly deliver papers at leading international conferences, publish their findings in leading scholarly journals, and are helping to shape the research agendas in their respective areas. Postgraduate students are provided with numerous opportunities to advance their research skills and subject knowledge. These include regular talks and classes by leading academics via an extensive visiting scholars programme, cross-institutional workshops and mini-conferences, an annual international Summer School and regular joint events with the Aleksanteri Institute, University of Helsinki. Final assessment involves the submission of a thesis of between 70,000 and 100,000 words and an oral examination (viva voce).
