Erasmus Student Network (ESN) is a non-profit international student organisation. Our mission is to represent international students, thus providing opportunities for cultural understanding and self-development under the principle “Students helping students”, working for the creation of a more mobile and flexible education environment by supporting and developing the student exchange from different levels (local, regional and international) and providing an intercultural experience also to those students who cannot access a period abroad (“internationalisation at home”).
Born on the 16th October 1989 and legally registered in 1990, our association has been growing and growing until today, where we can be found in 42 countries and in more than 1000 Higher Education Institutions. This network is made up of 15000 local volunteers (active members) whose main purpose is to help 350000 international students each year.
ESN Cadiz offers help in the academic, social and practical integration process. This is mainly done through activities which include cultural and social events such as guide tours, trips, sport’s contests, language tandems, international food dinners, and last, but not least, parties, where you have the opportunity to bond with other erasmus students and local people. Also, we provide relevant information and encourage the future exchange students to gain international experience and gain relevant insight into different cultures.
With two offices (Cádiz and Jerez), we, volunteers, create all the activities for you, international students, to have the best experience of your life.

Erasmus Student Network Cádiz
A great initiative. As you can see in the pictures, great organization.
Such actions should be praised.
Erasmus is not only about funds, EU bureaucracy and activities abroad.
Now it’s a whole community of people.
Whoever becomes Erasmus once is forever.
After returning to their home school, many students engage in voluntary work and look for an opportunity to test themselves.
Erasmus + has given a lot. He gets just as much in return.
Greetings from Poland!
ESN is a great organization. Has been operating at our university since 2014 and during that time has created a great community of people for whom it is important to look beyond the borders of their country and broaden their horizons.
I always advise students who are afraid to travel to join ESN – they will experience such a small Erasmus in the safety of their home and meet new friends and cultures. 🙂
