Description

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.

In my opinion, the university of Siena is one of good universities of Italy. To be honest, it is not the best but it offers all facilities for students. Professors, lectures, exams are really good. Also, Siena is just perfect city in terms of life quality, and on top 5 in Italy. There are many opportunities for students such as, Erasmus, Overseas, Double degree and so on.

Advantages -DSU Toscana provides you an accommodation and stipends. That is need based scholarship. Most low-income students are provided. -Siena has many professors who are highly ranked according to Google Scholar. -City is small and all campuses can be reached easily. -You have 6 chances to make your grades better for whole year. Disadvantages -City is labyrinth. -Courses are not well organised. There is only one accounting related course in MSc International Accounting and Management. -Most professors don't care about your thesis, process and writings. -During the lesson, professors use Italian words. That is unacceptable.

The university does not present particular disadvantage as it is all well organized and from the students' point of view there is also an efficient dialogue with the teaching staff. The programming of the sessions is well done although there are some minor issues that occur for specific teachers. In general, I can only advise prospective students to undertake a course of studies at UniSi

I studied in Siena for six years and, from the first time, I came to this wonderful city, I felt very happy and satisfied with my decision. I studied pharmacy there (this programme of studies is based in San Miniato, which is a green, nice, leafy area, only ten minutes away from the city centre by bus) and I can say it was a very good decision. The lecturers are readily available and friendly to you, and they will provide support throughout your entire course. Also, the facilities are really good. There are a lot of cafeterias inside the university, providing you with lots of food options and make you feel at home. Another positive aspect is that the university is funding many bursaries so that students with lower incomes can also attend the programmes delivered there. I consider that the only downside is that the university affiliation does not entitle you to obtain discounts in the Siena's public transports, so if you want to be a student there, you must take into consideration that you have to pay approximately extra 50 euro on top of your monthly budget, so you can get around the city. In conclusion, I would totally recommend this incredible city and great institution to study, and if you have time, to enjoy a good Fiorentina's slice!

University of siena is located in the beautiful city of siena which has a very big cultural roots as shown in the yearly horse race organised by the city called the 'palio' .A good and quiet city to live in, you can find places close to you, beautiful restaurants, accommodation, and shopping centers. The university it self is very rich in diversity as it has about 13 courses being taught in English, so there are a lot of international students which you can get to meet during classes or social events organised by the school such as "nice to meet you, Azerbaijan or Togo or Nigeria 'depending on the country. I study Electronics and communications Engineering which can be challenging but am working towards it. All in all University of siena is a place you will want to be if you are ever in Italy, Ciao.
