What is ESN Kyiv?

ESN Kyiv is a non-profit organisation aiming at helping international students that come to study in Kyiv. Our mission is to represent international students, thus provide opportunities for cultural understanding and self-development under the principle of Students Helping Students.

ESN Kyiv became an official member of Erasmus Student Network June 2nd, 2019. But we celebrate our birthday on September 23rd, as on this day in 2018 we were registered as a candidate section. ESN Kyiv originally started taking care of the international students of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. Since one of our key priorities is expanding to more universities in Kyiv, we already are cooperating with the National University of Life and Environmental Sciences of Ukraine and are in touch with others.

Who are we?

Currently, we are a section of 20 members. A lot of us are students, some are recent graduates, but we all are active and inspired volunteers. Many of us take part in different international projects, are members of other youth organisations, or even lead our own initiatives. You can learn more about our team here.

ESN Kyiv has a certain structure that helps us ensure we cover all the aspects of the international students' stay in the city. Our section consists of departments of Communication, Events, Partnerships, and Education.

What do we do?

We strive to make international students' stay in Kyiv the most amazing time of their life. ESN Kyiv consists of multiple departments that work together to provide international students with quality cultural events, give them educational support where needed or simply be there for them. Learn more about our events here.

How to take part in ESN Kyiv events?

There are no special requirements one has to follow to attend our events, they are absolutely open to any and every student (exchange, international or local).
