The ESNcard is the membership card of ESN which means that you can access to all the services offered by the ESN and our partners. With the ESNcard, you will enjoy thousands of discounts (housing, sport, food, bars, etc.) all over Europe. Moreover, you will have the opportunity to participate in thousands of events (trips, cultural events, sports activities and parties) all year long.
The aim of the ESNcard is to support and give opportunities to international students during and after their exchange.
Who uses the ESNcard?
The ESNcard is used by over 160.000 people per year in 40 countries, and the numbers are growing every year.
You can get the ESNcard, if you belong to one of the following groups:
- Erasmus+ students;
- Erasmus+ trainees;
- Erasmus+ International incoming students;
- International incoming students or trainees on a mobility programme, outside of Erasmus+;
- International undergraduate or postgraduate full degree students;
- EVS volunteers;
- ESNers: either active on Local, National or International level. They are all members of a section;
- Alumni: contact your ESN section and see if you are entitled to receive an ESNcard (this depends on the statutes of each ESN section);
- Buddies: if there is an ESN section in your city, and you are part of a buddy programme, contact the local ESN section and see if you are entitled to receive an ESNcard (this depends on the statutes of each ESN section). If you are not entitled, you can always become an ESNer.
How can you get the ESNcard?
You can buy you ESNcard at your local ESN section. ESN is a non-profit organisation run by volunteers. The partnerships for the different deals are simply a nice service offered by a company or organisation that believes in the same values or a way for local sections to generate income by offering promotion. In both case, you are the one to benefit from this!
If you are an ESNer, an Alumnus, or a Buddy and you are not in mobility, you can obtain your ESNcard from the local ESN section as long as you are volunteering for the organisation.
If there is no ESN section in your destination city, you can get your ESNcard from the closest ESN section.
