Doctoral Research Programmes

The University of Siena has set up Doctoral Research Programmes for young people with particular expertise in the field of research who wish to obtain the qualification of PhD. The Doctoral Research Programmes offer a wide variety of programmes on specific scientific topics.
Admission to the Doctoral Research Programmes  is subject to a selection process, which is open to those in possession of an Italian second cycle degree (or degree awarded under the previous Italian system) or an equivalent qualification in length and content awa rded by a foreign university.
Each year there are places with grants and places without grants for doctoral students admissible to each Doctoral Research Programme. Grants are awarded according to a list of merit drawn up following the admission examination and the exact number of grants is redefined on an annual basis
