What is ESN?
Erasmus Student Network Erasmus (ESN) is a non-profit international student organisation.
Our mission is to represent international students, thus provide opportunities for cultural understanding and self-development under the principle of Students Helping Students.
There are 15.000 members from more than 500 local sections in 41 countries in whole Europe and partner countries working on a volunteer base in Higher Education Institutions. ESN offers services to 180.000 students. Now ESN is the biggest interdisciplinary student association in Europe.
Despite of the main focus of ESN being placed on current exchange students, who often face problems (and feel abandoned) in their new environments.
Therefore, ESN offers help in academic, social and practical integration process. This is mainly done through activities in the local sections, which include cultural and social events such as trips to various places within the country, film nights, language projects, international food festivals and last, but not least, parties. In addition to that, many sections have introduced mentor systems, which help the international students mainly in academic and practical integration.
