What are our values?

Who are we for?

  • Homecoming students or the students who are returning from their exchange are being supported in reintegration process in their home countries by their local sections by keeping contact with an international environment.

  • ESN also provides advice and give suggestions to all outgoing students who will be exchange students using our wide network.

  • The main focus of ESN is placed on current exchange students, who often face problems in their new environments. Therefore, ESN works to improve the social, practical, and academic integration of international students.


  • 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.

  • Many sections have introduced ESNbuddy systems, which help the international students mainly in academic and practical integration.

  • By operating in three different levels (local, national, and international) we represent the needs and rights of international students.

  • ESN also provides relevant information and encourages the future exchange students to gain the international experience and gain relevant insight to different cultures.

How do we do it?

Why do we do it?

  • "Mobility is a lifestyle!" and we believe that mobility shapes European citizenship, improves opportunities, broadens horizons and enhances multicultural understanding.

  • We believe we are the right Network for people to address these issues because we have experience, knowledge, real-life mobility and can take a different approach than the institutions.
