Additional courses

Additional courses are those whose credit points provide more than the 180 credit points needed to fulfil the Italian degree requirements.

Additional activities can be selected from among languages and elective courses; students can also have one internship as an additional activity.

To calculate the grade point average, only two additional exams may be considered (those for which students received the highest marks; if grades achieved are the same, the courses with the highest number of credit points are considered).

The choice of additional activities (courses and/or internship) is carried out starting from the fourth year of studies by sending a request via  B in Touch between from 26 July to 25 August 2023 (for first-semester courses) and from 09 to 22 January 2024 (for second-semester courses).

8.8.
Concurrent enrollment in two study programs

Law no. 33 of 12/04/2022 allows enrollment in two study programs at the same time, as long as:

  • the two study programs do not belong to the same field of study;  
  • the concurrent enrollment in the two study programs with different fields of study guarantees that at least 2/3 of the educational activities are different.

In addition, for Bocconi only: 

  • the two study programs are offered at two different Universities.  

Because any concurrent enrollments must necessarily be communicated to the two Universities, students in this situation are encouraged to fill out the self-declaration form available in the yoU@B student diary > Concurrent Enrollment. The responsible offices will then be able to carry out the appropriate checks or contact the interested parties for further details, if necessary.

The university will collect information regarding concurrent enrollment at the beginning of each academic year.
