"Nice To Meet You, Italy!"

Welcome day for the international students

November 18, starting at 3pm

Aula Magna, Main University Building 


"Nice to Meet you, Italy" is an event promoted by the International Place/URP of the University of Siena that will be held next Nov 18, from 3 pm onwards, in the Aula Magna of the Main University Building, to welcome the new international students enrolled on the first and second level degree courses.

During this event, some of our international students - already settled in the University and the city life - will talk about their experience in Siena, dealing with topics of great interest for newly arrived students. Representatives of the local authorities will also attend the event.

This initiative, organized by the Europe Direct Information Centre of the University of Siena and co-funded by the European Commission, is part of the larger project "Nice To Meet You", launched in 2013 to contribute to raise awareness and disseminate the European Union (EU) policies oriented to integration and multiculturalism, in particular according to the new policy on migration, this being one of 10 political priorities of the Juncker Commission.

The University of Siena at the top of the national classification for 2014
The University of Siena has ranked the best Italian university of the year for 2014. The University’s place at the top of the Censis classification of Italian universities has been confirmed, with the highest average score of 103.4%.
The ranking was published only a few days ago in the “Grande Guida Università 2014-2015” distributed by the national daily newspaper La Repubblica, and was based on the parameters of structures, services, study grants, website and internationalization, as well as teaching and research.
The University of Siena is also among the best universities in Italy for teaching in four different disciplinary groups, and has obtained positive results for its research in many areas.
The University of Siena 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.
