Being abroad, in a different country, experiencing an international environment, is the best opportunity to make new friends, meet a different culture, learn a language and grow as a person.
Even if the most well-known mobility programme is Erasmus+, there are many other opportunities waiting for you:

  • Study - Experience education from a new perspective.
  • Internship - Start an exciting new chapter in your life.
  • Work - Grow professionally in a new environment.
  • Travel - Explore and travel while helping a good cause.

Enhance your adventure abroad:

  • ESNcard - International discounts for you.

To ensure you have the best time of your life, contact the ESN volunteers of your host city:

  • Are you coming to Portugal? - we have 14 sections in 15 cities ready to welcome you;
  • Other places in Europe - Erasmus Student Network has 500 sections to help you out!
