Santa Chiara, High School for PhD and Postgraduate Studies
in University of Siena, is a high qualification pole for post-graduate
courses and especially for Phd. It was set up by Education Ministry in
2004, after a 5 years experimentation.
A Scientific Committee of external experts recognized PhD Schoolsbelonging to Santa Chiara as excellent, according to their degree of internationalization and their research and educational activities. Grouped around the School, there is a scientific community of professors and students from University of Siena and anywhere in the world.
The Graduate School is engaged into Multidisciplinary Programmes (Pro.M.)submitted at least by three PhD Schools; it also calls for Visiting Chair in emerging and cross-field disciplines, thus favouring a more flexible work both in research and scientific education.
Santa Chiara organizes common courses for PhD students as well as fostering international exchanges. School fellows both contribute to educational activities held by the PhD teaching staff and help students in their research. The Graduate School is endowed with two residences: Collegio Santa Chiara and the Refugio, both placed in the city centre, conceived to accommodate PhD students at the University of Siena, visiting research students from different Universities, chair professors, and School's fellows.
Our residences are also intended for for scientific conferences and workshops, as well as places for informal aggregation.
Finally, they provide meals and facilities for meetings and cultural initiatives.
