Dedicated to international students, the International Place is the virtual interface of the International Desk (Sportello integrato internazionale), which is physically located in the public relations office (URP, Banchi di Sotto 55, Siena).
It gathers under one roof the various activities and services offered to international students: those enrolled on or intending to enrol on a one or more modules or a degree course at the University of Siena; visiting professors, researchers, PhD students.
The International Place helps and accompanies international users on the path from initial access to the local and university environment to their full integration.
On 19 May 2017 new guidelines were issued regarding payment of tuition fees and for enrolment in Siena University courses for the 2017/2018 academic year.

These fees apply to students who are not grantees.
