Pre-Enrollment a.y. 2018/2019

The enrolment in Chemistry for foreign students at the University of Siena is a simple three step process:

1)   Pre-enrolment: Students must apply for pre-enrolment on the University web portal , that has a fee of 30 € for processing costs. Payment is made (only) by bank transfer (see instructions below) and the receipt of the bank transfer must be attached to the pre-enrollment documentation. Without evidence of payment receipt, the application will not be evaluated.

2)   Pre-enrolment acceptance: The Chemistry Committee evaluates each applicant’s Transcript and Curriculum. Bachelor degree holders (minimum 3 years full time BSc) in Chemistry,  Applied Chemistry or Chemical Engineering will be evaluated for appropriate scientific background to allow for success in the Master degree programme.

3)   Selective assessment on-line test: Successfully evaluated applicants participate in a mandatory selective assessment online test in Chemistry. The assessment will be held entirely on-line in the third week of May 2018 (more information will be provided directly to the selected students).

Once the applicant passes the Selective Assessment, he will receive an official Acceptation Letter from the University of Siena that is necessary for the VISA application where required.
