ESN Amsterdam - the network for internationals students at AUAS & UvA

Are you looking for an organisation for students by students, then look no further: the Erasmus Student Network Amsterdam is here for you! We will help you to make Amsterdam your home while you socialise with students from all around the world.

At ESN Amsterdam we offer a variety of activities ranging from trips and parties to social, cultural and sports activities. However, we also offer volunteering activities, Dutch language classes, a Language Exchange Programme, a Buddy programme and much more! ESN Amsterdam has adapted its offering to include online events for students during these uncertain times, making sure they don’t miss out on valuable experiences.

We are part of the larger Erasmus Student Network (ESN), which is an organisation with 339 divisions in 34 countries, helping students during their time studying abroad.

Information about different student associations

Welcome to Amsterdam! Our capital city has a lot to offer, including a rich culture of student associations. Students from different studies get together to have unforgettable events such as borrels, galas in- and outside the country, trips abroad, dinners and many more great activities. A student association is a great way to make new friends and develop yourself in a safe, corona-proof, environment, especially now that most classes are being held online.

Our platform ‘Lid Worden in Amsterdam’ allows you to discover which student associations there are, and it helps you find which one is the best fit for you, so you can get the most out of your time as a student in Amsterdam!

One way of finding out is through taking our quiz. You will also find information about different student associations, ranging from classical ones, both with hazing as well as without hazing, cultural student associations, and sports-centered student associations. We also made a video series on YouTube in which members of student associations tell you more about their experiences. The clips are in Dutch, but you can turn on the automatic translation function in YouTube.
