Once applied at Punto Blu, if successful, you will be able to display/print the application receipt. You can then proceed with the Partner application as you are among the first 10 students.

If not successful, the system will notify in real time if the destination has just reached the 10 students cap.

If a destination – among the ones listed here - is no more displayed, it means that the 10 students cap has already been reached.

If a student cancels the application for that destination, his/her place will become available again.


When Bocconi students have received a formal acceptance letter from the foreign university, they are required to access once again their application at Punto Blu and they will need to upload the acceptance letter and the Language certificate (if required) to finalize their application.

Complete applications must be received at Punto Blu at least one week before departure.


After completing the application process by uploading all the requested documents, students must notify the Study Abroad Office through B in Touch.

The Study Abroad Office will then check if the student meets the Bocconi academic and language requirements and will send a notification once the recognition platform is available in the yoU@B diary;

The Study Abroad Office may (or may not) validate the request according to the eligibility criteria. Only upon receipt of this validation via B in Touch the student is definetely allowed to take part in the Free-Mover Semester experience and register it into his/her career once back.
