The Erasmus Student Network (ESN) is the biggest student associations in Europe. It was born on the 16th October 1989 and legally registered in 1990 for supporting and developing student exchange. ESN is present in more than 520  Higher Education Institutions in 40 countries and is constantly developing and expanding. (For current numbers check here)

The mission of ESN is to create a more mobile and flexible education environment by supporting and developing student exchange. At the same time ESN also wishes to provide an intercultural experience to those students, who are not able to study abroad. ESN works in the interest of exchange students and wishes to improve the social and practical integration of exchange students. In Odense we do so by doing several things:

  • Organising events, trips and activities for students.
  • Buddy program - matching new incoming students with local students.
  • Promoting mobility among local students.
  • Involving international students in local community by organising charititable, enviromental and educational activities.
