In the context of the internalization process, from 2012 to 2018 the University of Siena has increased foreign students enrollment in the first year of the Masters programmes taught in English, becoming the Italian university with the largest percentage of international students.
A warm message from the Rector’s Delegate for Internationalization
“The University of Siena has a long history of European and interna-
tional linkages. Established in the 13th century in one of the richest and culturally stimulating free cities of medieval Italy, our University has been always open to inter-cultural and international exchanges. More recently, this natural predisposition has evolved in an explicit policy of internationalization. Students from many different countries are enrolled in many of the about seventy programs we offer. They work side by side and they live the city-campus, together with thousands of Italian students and with hundreds of visitors – both European and overseas incoming students – who arrive every year, to spend at least one semester with us. All these students contribute to transform this beautiful town into an international environment. This is after all our main goal: to teach new generations of scholars and professionals from all around the world, who in turn will be able to change our life. I firmly believe that this is a fundamental aspect of our mission, and I am sure that the more we will be able to get truly international classes, the more our world will be able to respond to all challenges, ensuring peace and prosperity.”
