Erasmus Student Network 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. Born on the 16th October 1989 and legally registered in 1990, ESN is the biggest student association in Europe.

We are present in 40 countires with 526 local sections: the network is constantly developing and expanding. We are around 14.500 active volunteers and,  in many sections, we are supported by the so-called buddies, jointly taking care of international students. Thus, ESN involves around 34.000 young people offering its services to around 190.000 international students every year.
