Description of the Section:

ESN EU is considered to be one of the biggest sections in Bratislava taking care of more than 200 incoming students annually. As the number of Erasmus students is increasing so does the number of the active members of the Buddy system who are inevitable part of ESN team. Thus, we can guarantee more focused and personal approach towards each of them and at the same time it will allow us to participate in more challenging projects in the future. Each semester the section helps the incoming students after their arrival and in the cooperation with other sections in Bratislava it organizes trips, events and many other interesting activities which make the stay of foreign students in Slovakia enjoyable.
