Erasmus Student Network (ESN) is an European-wide student organisation, created to support and develop student exchange. We have more than 440 local sections in 36 countries working in Higher Educational Institutes (HEI) being organised on a local, national and international level with approximately 12,000 active working members. Our network is in direct contact with more than 160,000 international minded students. The aims of ESN are to promote the social and personal integration of the exchange students. We organise welcome parties and all kind of fun events, all year long. We also set up buddy programs, provide information and may even come and fetch you at the airport when you arrive! In a word, we are here to make your stay a better, easier and crazier one. On this website you will find more information about us, our activities and the many ways we can help you. May this be a first step towards a successful and fun exchange in the company of ESN!
