Why work with ESN?

  • A link to the international students

Our international aim is to offer services to our sections that they can provide to the students that they represent. Our sections aim to provide a smooth transition and integration into the host country for the students by proposing various activities and offering services to them for their period studying abroad.

  • A new image for your company

Being a partner of ESN demonstrates your involvement in the future of Europe and in the youth of Europe. 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 discounts and deals offered by partners of ESN. ESNcard.org is a search engine that gathers almost 2.000 discounts from international, national and local deals around Europe.  

In 2018, there were 220.000 ESNcards distributed  to students around Europe. The ESNcard is used by over 600+ ESN sections in 39 countries. Furthermore, the website is a membership database for all 220.000 ESNcard holders. You can see the website at the following address: ESNcard.org
