Erasmus Student Network (ESN) is the biggest student association 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 800 Higher Education Institutions from 39 countries.
The network is constantly developing and expanding on three levels: local, national, and international. It has around 15,000 active members that are in many sections supported by so called buddies mainly taking care of international students. Thus, ESN involves around 34,000 young people offering its services to around 200,000 international students every year.
ESN works for the creation of a more mobile and flexible education environment by supporting and developing the student exchange from different levels, and providing an intercultural experience also to those students who cannot access a period abroad (“internationalisation at home”).
The story of ESN Serbia began in 2006 with the founding of the first section, ESN Belgrade. Although the city of Belgrade created an ESN section in 2006, the section was revived and officially registered in 2013 under an empowering name symbolizing growth and development – ESN BelUPgrade. A few brave individuals who shared common goals were united in their willingness to make this section strong and recognizable.
Today, ESN BelUPgrade has 50 members who do their best to help exchange students as well as to promote mobility and to show traditional Serbian hospitality. Besides its section in Belgrade, ESN Serbia includes sections in Novi Sad and Niš.
