Course Selection

Course selection for the Fall Semester 2016-17 will be carried out in the period August 23-29, 2016.

In order to select their study plan, exchange students will have to login to the following website:

Courses are assigned on a FIRST-COME-FIRST-SERVED basis.

In the unlikely event that a course chosen through the online application is not activated, the student will be immediately contacted by the International Student Desk in order to substitute it.

Exchange students will have the possibility to change their study plan during the Add/drop period scheduled in the period September 08-15, 2016 (upon courses availability). After this second deadline (September 15, 2016) no changes (add/switch/drop) will be allowed.

All the courses included in your study plan will appear in your final transcript.

Università Bocconi can avoid overlappings only between courses of the same Year and of the same Degree program. As exchange students can choose among courses of every year of every Degree program, there may be overlaps between the classes of the different courses. Different class groups of the same course (code) may have a different class schedule. Different class groups may be awarded a different number of credits.

In case you need assistance in building your study plan, you can contact the Academic Advisors.


  1. Exchange students are expected to select min. 2 up to max. 5 courses per term.
  2. Undergraduate students can choose only among undergraduate courses (with code 30xxx and some 50xxx).
