STEP 1. Get a team

To create a section you first need a group of enthusiastic people who wish to work on the ESN idea offering services and taking care of international students at your university.

A good way to find interested people is by engaging your friends, placing an advertisement in the university newspaper or distributing flyers.


Another source of contacts is the administration at your university and especially the International Relations Office. They know the names of the outgoing former exchange students and can help you with recruiting members.


STEP 2. Cooperation with your university

It is much more easier to work as a section in ESN, when you have the support from your International Relations Office of the university.

Usually, they are willing to put you in contact with visiting international students, help you with financing, getting office, and finding a place to host the activities.


STEP 3. Principles of ESN

We would expect that the sections joining the ESN work in accordance with our official principles. Please have a look at these pages now and make sure, that you can accept the core of ESN.
