The ESNcard is a card that any foreign student currently on Erasmus or a local volunteer for ESN can obtain, and which provides access to all the services offered by the ESN and its partners. It provides several discounts at events, in shops, restaurants, bars, hostels, shipment and accommodation services, etc. all over Europe. It is valid for 12 months from the day of its purchase and valid only with a photo and correct personal data. The card is strictly personal, therefore it cannot be used by anybody else than the cardholder. The aim of the ESNcard is to support and give opportunities to international students during and after their exchange.

You can get the ESNcard if you belong to one of the following groups

  • Erasmus+ students;
  • Erasmus+ trainees;
  • Erasmus+ Full International Degree incoming students;
  • International incoming students or trainees on a mobility programme, other than Erasmus+;
  • International undergraduate or postgraduate full degree students.
  • EVS participants;
  • ESN volunteers: either active on the Local, National or International Level.

- NAME (name and surname of the cardholder)



- ESN SECTION (either the issuing section or home section of the cardholder)

- VALIDITY (it's valid for 12 months from the date of its issuing)
