What to check before starting the application

Before starting the online application, we recommend to check the following elements:

  • Categories of applicants: Check whether you apply as an “Italian applicant” or as an “International applicant”;

  • Secondary school diploma: Please carefully verify the secondary school diploma requirements for enrollment, as well as the specific diploma requirements and integrations (such as declaration of value, APs, etc...) to be provided in case of admission. Profiles of candidates whose secondary school diploma does not meet the necessary requirements and integrations will NOT be taken into consideration for admission.

  • English requirement for enrollment check the list of certificates and diplomas accepted to fulfil the English requirement for enrollment, in case of admission. 


When to apply

There are three selection sessions available for the admission to the 2023/24 AY: 

  • Early session: first round mainly dedicated to second-last year secondary school students (2022/23 Graduation year students), willing to apply in advance.
  • Winter session: second round open to last year secondary school students (2022/23 Graduation year students) and to students already graduated or coming from other Universities.

The majority of places available (around 90-95%) will be allocated by the end of this rounds

  • Spring session: third and last round that assigns approximately the 5-10% of total places available. It is open to last year secondary school students (2022/23 Graduation year students) and to students already graduated or coming from other Universities.

As competition is very intense, applicants are advised to apply as soon as possible. As a matter of fact, early applications can have greater chances to be successful, to meet financial aid/scholarships opportunities and to respect all the student visa deadlines (set for NON-EU applicants).



Before applying, applicants must have already taken a selection test (Bocconi online test, SAT or ACT) and obtained a score. Even if they have taken a selection test, candidates are not automatically signed up for the upcoming selection session. This means that it's the candidate's responsibility to decide whether or not to apply in the upcoming selection session and with which test score. Test scores will not be automatically acquired from the webtesting platform.
