Erasmus Student Network Croatia
Erasmus Student Network Croatia is an independent, non-profit, student, voluntary, apolitical, non-governmental and non-religious national organisation governed by the principles of Erasmus Student Network AISBL. ESN is the biggest student association in Europe. It is present in more than 1000 higher education institutions from 42 countries and the network is constantly developing and expanding. We have around 15 000 active members who are in many sections supported by non-members or so-called buddies mainly taking care of international students. Thus, ESN involves around 40 000 young people offering its services to around 350 000 international students every year.
ESN works towards the development 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”).
All of our volunteers share the same mission, vision, and values. Our areas of work can be described under a common name – causes. Six causes of ESN are Culture, Environmental Sustainability, Health and Well-being, Education and Youth, Skills and Employability, and Social Inclusion.
ESN is operating on the local, national, and international levels. ESN Croatia is considered to be the national level of ESN present in the Republic of Croatia and it has six local sections in six different cities across the country: ESN Dubrovnik, ESN Osijek, ESN Rijeka, ESN Split, ESN Zadar, and ESN Zagreb.
