The Centre for Russian, Soviet, Central and East European Studies at St Andrews was founded in 1990. Its aim is to promote Russian, post-Soviet and East European research and teaching by bringing together members of staff from various departments across the university who share interests in this field. The Centre organises an annual conference, sponsors visiting speakers, runs informal colloquia and offers a package of taught postgraduate courses leading to higher degrees in Central and East European Studies. Members of the Centre also supervise individual PhD students in this area.
