The Erasmus Student Network (ESN)

 

ESN is an Europe wide student organization supporting and developing
student exchange. It is composed of over 2500 members from more than 250 local
sections in 34 countries. The network is in contact with almost 60 000
internationally-minded students.


The aim of ESN is to promote the social and personal integration of
exchange students.  The ESN sections
offer help and guidance to exchange students at universities. Newcomers find
their way in the new environment easier and they can utilize their time in the
best way.


 ESN Card


The ESN card is the magic key for many ESN activities. It gives you
cheaper access to trips, parties and other activities organized by ESN
sections. There are many special deals for ESN card holders. In Lisbon for
example you get free entrance into clubs and cheaper drinks with your ESN card.

Where can you get this card?

You can get this card at the ESN section of your host university for a
small amount. Most of the Portuguese sections in Portugal work with the ESN
card.

Buddy system


The buddy system gives exchange students the possibility of having a
local student of their own. Exchange students who apply to the Buddy System get
a buddy who shows his city to the foreigner. He can help with problems and can
be a friend in the other city. It’s a great opportunity for exchange students
to connect with locals. Its not only popular among exchange students, many
Portuguese students like to care for the Erasmus student. More information at
your university or the website.


Tandem

 

Tandem is a system of learning foreign languages with another student
during individual meetings. This way you can learn or improve a foreign
language for free. You and your partner choose where to meet and the frequency
of the meetings based on your own preferences. It is also an easy way to gain
first-hand knowledge about another country. It’s a great way of learning, not
from books but from a person like you.
