What is ESN Ukraine?
ESN Ukraine is a non-profit national-level student organization that represents local Erasmus Student Network sections. Our mission is to represent international students, thus provide opportunities for cultural understanding and self-development under the principle of Students Helping Students. We also share information about opportunities provided by Erasmus+ program and maintain a national-wide alumni network.
At the moment, we have a section in Kyiv and another one in Chernivtsi. The board of ESN Kyiv is the one responsible for ESN Ukraine management.
ESN Kyiv became an official member of Erasmus Student Network June 2nd, 2019. Yet, we celebrate our birthday on September 23rd, as on this day in 2018 we were registered as a candidate section. ESN Kyiv originally started taking care of the international students of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. Since one of our key priorities is expanding to more universities in Kyiv, we already are cooperating with the National University of Life and Environmental Sciences of Ukraine, Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute, Kyiv National Linguistic University and are in touch with others.
Who are ESN Kyiv and ESN Ukraine?
Currently, we are a section of 40 members. A lot of us are students, some are recent graduates, but we all are active and inspired volunteers. Many of us take part in different international projects, are members of other youth organisations, or even lead our own initiatives. You can learn more about our team here.
