Why study in Tuscany

Tuscany is home to several prestigious universities, at which a wide variety of subjects can be studied: the Universities of Florence, Pisa and Siena, the University for Foreigners of Siena, and the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies and Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa.
Studying in Tuscany means joining a highly prestigious university network and represents an unique opportunity for students to live in towns of great historic and artistic interest such as Florence, Pisa and Siena - all UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Tuscany, the heart of Italian culture and birthplace of the Italian language, is unequalled in Italy for its preservation of both cultural traditions and architectural heritage since Medieval times. The renowned native land of Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Galileo and Puccini, Tuscany is also home to the modern Gucci, Ferragamo and Piaggio. 

While providing unrivalled access to national treasures and attractions - from the leaning tower of Pisa to Florence’s Uffizi and the Palio of Siena – the region also boasts leading national and international laboratories devoted to high profile research and innovation.
