You will need BootCamp & Windows License.

To be honest though, I run a Macbook Pro with Bootcamp and Windows 10 and it struggles to run a medium to large size Revit model (upwards of 40Mb). I think Revit struggles to fully utilise the GPU and the RAM is a little underweight. I wish I had a windows laptop instead like an Acer Predator 300 for example. My wife has a Macbook Air and I don't think it would be powerful enough to efficiently run Revit.

I ran Revit on my 2010 Macbook Pro back in my undergrad days. It was able to handle it for the most part as long as the file size didn't get outrageous. At one point it got to where I could only run Revit, any other application opened would increase lag time between commands. Macbook Airs have come a long way since 2010, but for long term Revit use, its recommended to get a beefier system.

Boot Camp is already available to you. One would just need to allocate part of your SSD drive to house your Windows OS as well as additional file storage. 256/512Gb is already a small capacity to then dedicate space for Revit use depending on how you use your computer. Parallels is another option which creates a virtual desktop and does not require partioning your hard drive.
