University of SienaAdd to Favourites
The University of Siena in Tuscany is one of the oldest universities in Italy.
Founded in 1240, the university underwent massive expansion in the 20th century, growing from a cohort of 400 students between the World Wars, to its current one of around 20,000-strong.
The number of faculties increased alongside student numbers, evolving from an original offering of medicine, surgery and law to a broad and diverse academic portfolio across 15 academic departments. Courses are taught in either Italian or English, and summer schools exist for professionals and students looking to develop their specific knowledge in many fields.
Students at Siena are encouraged to take up the various opportunities for industry experience on offer and practical work experience is integrated into most degree courses.
