Who are we?

Erasmus Student Network (ESN) is the biggest student association in Europe. We are present in more than 1000 Higher Education Institutions from 42 countries. We have 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 40,000 young people offering its services to around 350,000 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").

ESN URJC is one of the +530 sections that integrate ESN. We are based in the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, in Madrid and we receive every year more than 500 international students.
