The Erasmus Student Network Venezia is a non-profit, apolitical association of students founded in 2011. Its aim is to support the student exchange programs, supplying information and any kind of help that can be voluntarily given by its members. ESN Venezia is member of the Italian network, ESN Italia, and of the international one, ESN International. ESN International is a pan-European student organization which was founded in Copenhagen in 1990. Since then, the network has expanded considerably. At the moment ESN consists of more than 250 sections in 30 countries. Despite its name, the network is devoted to students participating in all exchange programs in Europe.
- improving the social integration of foreign students at the host institution
- providing more adequate information about exchange programs
- taking advantage of exchange students' experience by making them active in the network
- continuously contributing to the evaluation of the European exchange programs based on the experiences of former exchange students.
In order to pursue these goals during the academic semesters of every year, ESN organizes cultural trips around Italy, guided visits in Venice, linguistic tandems, international dinners and parties.
