Why work with ESN?

  • A link to international students

The aim of ESN Switzerland is to offer services to our 15 local sections all over Switzerland. The goal of our sections is to provide a smooth integration of the exchange students in Switzerland by proposing various activities and offering services to them for their semester or year abroad.

  • A new image for your company

Being a partner of ESN demonstrates your involvement in the future of Switzerland and in the youth of Switzerland. Supporting ESN is an expression of interest in the possibilities of young people and the added value they bring with them after a successful mobility period. Providing financial, professional or tangible support for the daily activities of a volunteer student organisation likewise creates a positive public image for your company and brings social recognition and a long-term professional reputation for your brand. 

  • Offer unique services to our members

The ESNcard project, launched in 2004, aims to create an international student card for all exchange students and ESN volunteers. The ESNcard gives students the possibility to benefit from unique partnerships, offers and discounts on the local, national and international level. In 2012, ESN created a website for all ESNcard holders and students to access deals and discounts offered by partners of ESN. is a search engine that gathers almost 2.000 discounts from international, national and local deals all over Europe.  

In 2016, there were 140.000 ESNcards distributed to students in Europe. The ESNcard is used by over 500+ ESN sections in 40 countries. Furthermore, the website is a membership database for all 140.000 ESNcard holders.

What do we look for in a partner?

ESN is looking for partners that are national or international in their operations, outlook and scope. We would like to cooperate with companies and organisations that see value in having national or international, multicultural and multilingual teams working together, much like ESN. Furthermore, we are looking for partners that wish to support the work of ESN and thus, educational exchange, intercultural dialogue and international mobility.

Successful partnerships

Since 2012, ESN has been successfully cooperating with different partners, such as Uniplaces, which offers accomodation with a special promotion for over 30.000 rooms or Hostelling International, which offers discounts in hotels all over the world. Furthermore, we work with The Economist, which offers authoritative opinion and insight on international business, finance, news, politics, science and technology and the connections between them; Ultimate Ears, a custom earphone, monitor and speaker manufacturer; Jnuine, a free app that lets you gather all the unforgettable photos of your journey abroad in real-time with your friends; and Logitech, which designs personal devices to help people enjoy the digital world.
