Summer Abroad: Italy

The summer program in Siena, established in 1972, was our first Summer Abroad program and was the model for the other summer programs. Since its inception, over 5300 students from across Canada have completed a University of Toronto summer course in Siena. The praise for the program has been consistently and overwhelmingly enthusiastic. Our host has been the University of Siena, Italy’s second oldest university, dating back to 1240. It is a state university with over 18,000 students.
