Erasmus Student Network (ESN) 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.
ESN is one of the biggest student associations in Europe, which was born on the 16th of October 1989 and legally registered 1990 to support student exchange. ESN is present in more than 1000 Higher Education Institutions from 42 countries, and the network is constantly developing and expanding. Around 15,000 active members in all sections – buddies – are taking care of international students.
ESN is operating on three levels: local – yes, we are a local section, national, and international.
We are as ESN Ege University, established in 2006 in Ege University to help our international students! We are a part of ESN Turkey which is a the national level of ESN which connects us to ESN International. What do we do? We assign you mentor students to help you if you want one!
