Erasmus Student Network (ESN) is the biggest student association in Europe. It was established on the 16th of October, 1989 and legally registered in 1990 for supporting and developing student exchange. We are present in more than 500 Higher Education Institutions from 38 countries. The network is constantly developing and expanding. We have around 14.500 active members that are in many sections supported by so called buddies mainly taking care of international students. Thus, ESN involves around 34.500 young people offering its services to around 190.000 international students every year.
As a part of the international association, ESN Lithuania is a non-governmental association officially established under the name “Erasmus Studentų Tinklas ESN Lietuva”.
Our goals are: create the environment for personal improvement based on the principle “students helping students”; improve the social and cultural integration of international students; promote students’ mobility and its accessibility; help students’ reintegration into the community after their studies abroad; promote voluntary activities and active public spirit.
At the moment ESN Lithuania unites 15 sections working in 16 different Higher Education Institutions all across the country including Vilnius, Kaunas, Šiauliai and Klaipėda. ESN Lithuania is managed by the National Board, which presents organisation at the International level of ESN, organises National events, keeps the connection between local sections, provides facilities for their development.
