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.

Students can receive grants of up to 300 euro per month for study, or up to 400 euro 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.
