Erasmus Student Network Kyiv

Erasmus Student Network Kyiv is a local section of Erasmus Student Network located in Kyiv, Ukraine. ESN Kyiv is a non-profit organisation aiming at helping international students that come to study in Kyiv. Our mission is to represent international students, thus provide opportunities for cultural understanding and self-development under the principle of Students Helping Students.

ESN Kyiv became an official member of Erasmus Student Network June 2nd, 2019. ESN Kyiv originally started taking care of the international students of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, but since one of key priorities of the organisation is expanding to more universities in Kyiv, they are already cooperating with the National University of Life and Environmental Sciences of Ukraine, Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute and are in touch with others.

Currently, there is a section of 25 members. Majority of them are students, some are recent graduates – all are active and inspired volunteers. Many of them take part in different international projects, are members of other youth organisations, or even lead own initiatives. ESN Kyiv has a certain structure that helps to cover all the aspects of the international students’ stay in the city. The section consists of departments of Communication, Events, Partnerships, and Education. ESN Kyiv strives to make international students’ stay in Kyiv the most amazing time of their life. The organisation consists of multiple departments that work together to provide international students with quality cultural events, give them educational support where needed or simply be there for them. 

There are no special requirements one has to follow to attend events of ESN Kyiv, they are absolutely open to any and every student (exchange, international or local). They are always happy to welcome new members in the section. It doesn’t matter whether you are an international living in Kyiv or a Ukrainian. If you’re active and energetic, be sure to learn more and become one of the members of ESN Kyiv!
