We can offer your company or organisation access to this unique customer base, branding, visibility and affiliation with our pan-European student organisation and also the opportunity to attract a future workforce of internationally minded young, skilled professionals.
ESN offers flexible and customisable partnership agreements that will fit with your company’s aims, culture and practices.
Our international aim is to offer services to our sections that they can provide to the students that they represent. Our sections aim to provide a smooth transition and integration into the host country for thee students by proposing various activities and offering services to them for their period studying abroad.
Being a partner of ESN demonstrates your involvement in the future of Europe and in the youth of Europe. Supporting ESN is an expression of interest in the possibilities of young people and the added value they bring with them after a successful mobility period. Providing financial, professional or tangible support for the daily activities of a volunteer student organisation likewise creates a positive public image for your company and brings social recognition and a long-term professional reputation for your brand.
The ESNcard project, launched in 2005, aims to create an international student card for all exchange students and ESN volunteers. The ESNcard gives students the possibility to benefit from unique partnerships, offers and discounts on the local, national and international level. In 2012, there were 150.000 ESN cards distributed to students around Europe. The card is used by over 300 ESN sections in 30 countries.
In 2012, ESN created a website for all ESNCard holders and students to access discounts and deals offered by partners of ESN. Esncard.org is a search engine that gathers over 500 discounts from international, national and local deals around Europe. Furthermore, the website is a membership database for all 150.000 card holders. You can see the website at the following address:
ESN is looking for partners that are international in their outlook, scope and operations. We would like to cooperate with companies and organisations that see value in having international, multicultural and multilingual teams working together, much like ESN. Furthermore, we are looking for partners that wish to support the work of ESN and thus, international mobility, educational exchange and intercultural dialogue.
Since February 2011, ESN has been successfully cooperating with Vistaprint, a company offering online printing services to support the work of our sections. We also work with EF Education First, offering discounted language courses to students supporting our work to promote language learning and international mobility. The young fashion company New Yorker cooperates with us providing clothing solutions for ESN members and attractive discounts for students.
Moreover, to support the travel needs of exchange students, ESN signed two new partnership agreements in Summer 2012 with Brussels Airlines and Eurail.com to offer excellent travel opportunities for students by air and rail. At the beginning of 2013 ESN signed another deal with Airbnb, the N°1 community marketplace to list and book private accommodations around the world with 300,000 listings.
Please find attached our partnership booklet, it will give you an overview of ESN and the possibilities for cooperation we can offer.
ESN (Erasmus Student Network) is an independent non-partisan, non-political and non-profit international association which operates under Belgium law. Our partners support us mostly on a project base agreement. Their support is strictly related to our project and services deployment towards our network and International students and not to our organisation. The views expressed in our projects, research, surveys, articles and documentaries do not reflect the views of our partners.
