Erasmus Students Network UNWE

ERASMUS STUDENT NETWORK (ESN)

Erasmus Student Network (ESN) is a non-profit international student organisation. Their mission is to represent international students and provide opportunities for cultural understanding and self-development under the principle of Students Helping Students. Currently there are 550 local sections in 42 countries.



ERASMUS STUDENT NETWORK UNWE (ESN UNWE)

ESN UNWE is a local section in Sofia, Bulgaria. It’s represented by a group of volunteers that help international students coming on Erasmus in the University of National and World Economy (UNWE) with their integration in the local community.


ESN provides exchange students with different kinds of support like:

  • Connecting all incoming Erasmus students and thus forming a local Erasmus community;

  • Assisting students with transportation, accommodation (at the dorms or in an apartment), translation, and administration, among other things;

  • Enhancing their stay in Bulgaria by organizing a variety of engaging events and trips that comply with COVID measures.


BUDDY SYSTEM

Prior to their arrival all exchange students are offered the possibility to request a mentor (buddy) to help them on an even more personal level.


Some of the perks of having a buddy:

  • They meet students at the airport or bus/railway station and take them to their accommodation (depends on the buddy’s availability);

  • They assist exchange students with all standard procedures like checking in the dorms, moving in a flat, getting a public transportation card, opening a bank account, etc.

  • They know when and where the cool events take place, so will always keep exchange students informed.
