Erasmus Student Network Slovakia (ESN Slovakia) is a non-profitl student organisation. Our mission is to represent international students, thus provide opportunities for cultural understanding and self-development under the principle of Students Helping Students. One of the local sections is ESN Kosice.

Description of the Section

The character of our section is rather special. We were established
for the purpose of Pavol Jozef Šafárik University. Moreover, we cooperate with
two other universities in the city and take care of their Erasmus students;
therefore, we have to be organized quite well. Difficulties in managing the section
are relieved in connecting Erasmus students thus sharing ESN spirit among them.

History of the Section

To trace the beginning of ESN UPJŠ Košice we do not have to go far back
in time, only to 2009. Founders of the section, Norbert Ostro and Mária
Juraševská, have done the most difficult job negotiating with universities and
becoming salient; however, much work is still to be done in order to be fully
efficient.
