ESN (Erasmus Student Network) is an independent non-partisan, non-political and nonprofit international association which operates under Belgium law. Our partners support us mostly on a project base agreement. Their support is strictly related to our project and services deployment towards our network and International students and not to our organisation.
The views expressed in our projects, research, surveys, articles and documentaries do not reflect the views of our partners.
