DESCRIPTION AND METHODOLOGIES
The purpose of the initiatives adopted by the University of Siena is to encourage and guarantee the possibility of studying at university level for refugees.
The initiative adopted by the University of Siena is to waive the tuition fees that a refugee student should pay for enrollment. In this way, the refugee has a greater chance of being able to devote himself to study and improve his personal and social condition. The initiative concerns not only the first year tuition fees for enrollment, but the whole duration of studies in the university. The refugee student has to pay only the national and regional fees (the University cannot cancel those fees, not depending not on local initiatives).
