Università degli studi di Siena

Università degli studi di Siena Overview

The University of Siena in Siena, Tuscany is one of the oldest and first publicly funded universities in Italy. Originally called Studium Senese, the institution was founded in 1240. The university continues to work hard to provide top-level degree courses, focusing in particular on graduate employability and internationalization, thanks to its vastly increased number of courses run in English.

Swansea University currently has agreements in place with the Università degli studi di Siena for the College of Arts and Humanities and the department of Italian.

Erasmus+ Grant - approx 280-430€

The Erasmus+ Grant is dependent on location, and varies in each country. It is available for students who decide to spend up to a year of their course in Europe in 2017-18 through the Erasmus+ programme. Students can receive grants of up to 380 euros per month for study, or up to 430 euros per month for student traineeships, depending on the country they go to. This grant is a contribution to the extra costs of studying abroad, which is why it varies by country.
