Our main goal is to provide a great experience for every incoming international student in the Netherlands.
ESN Breda is one of the 500+ ESN sections around Europe. You can find ESN sections in more than 40 countries! We, at ESN Breda are aiming for creating a fully international environment and our main goal is to provide a great experience for every incoming international student in the Netherlands.
ESN is a sub-organisation of the Erasmus+ programme and is originally focused on exchange students. However, ESN Breda is operating for all international and Dutch students for a better chance to integrate. We provide airport pickups, we have a Buddy Programme that anyone can join and smaller social events for our buddy families.
Our board and committees consists of international and Dutch students, who are volunteering to create experiences for other students. We organise national and international trips, parties and cultural and sport events.
When you join ESN Breda or come to our events, you cannot avoid meeting people and making amazing friends! You have the chance to connect with people from all over the world. ESN is a special world and everywhere you go in Europe, you will automatically be part of this community!
At your arrival in the country, ESN welcomes you at the airport and guides you to Breda. This service is available both at Schiphol Amsterdam airport and Eindhoven airport at the beginning of each semester. Volunteers will be waiting for you at a set meeting point. From here they will help you get a train ticket to Breda and help you to get to the right platform on time.
Once in Breda, more ESN volunteers will be waiting for you just outside the station. They will guide you to drivers, who will bring you to your accommodation.
