Single Courses for Visiting Students

AY 2021-22

Bocconi University gives international students the opportunity to take courses at Bocconi on fee-paying basis.

Only students who are currently enrolled or already graduated in a University abroad can apply to the Visiting students/Free-movers program.

No further elements of selection are set and there are no limits to the number of students or graduates enrolling as Visiting students for single courses. Applicants are evaluated based on their overall profile.

Due to the ongoing health emergency, Bocconi has decided to offer visiting/free mover students a Virtual semester, that will be held entirely online.

Considering it will be an entirely virtual semester and that Bocconi has evaluated that the campus will be at its full capacity next semester, travelling to Milan and being on campus is not foreseen. This means that students enroll in a visiting student/free mover program won't have access to Bocconi facilities (residence halls, classrooms, library, etc.). 

Single courses available

Students are offered a wide range of courses to choose from, including both the undergraduate and graduate portfolios.

The list of courses available for visiting students for AY 2021-22 will be available in the Download area from Early July. Meanwhile, applicants can refer to the list of courses available for AY 2020-21, considering that it might change slightly form year to year*

Courses will be offered with in-distance learning option, meaning that students will be able to attend class remotely.

Courses contents and class timetables will be available from July.

Students can choose no more than 60 CFU/ECTS per year.

*Update: in the download area you can find the full list of courses that (would) have been available for AY 2020-21 (since the 1st semester has been cancelled and the 2nd has been offered online), to get an idea of the courses that are usually available for visiting students.
