More and more international students are coming to our university. We from ESN Witten/Herdecke want to help them integrate into university life. Our initiative was founded in 2013 under the name Witten International Network (WIN). By now, the team of ESN consists of students from all faculties.
Since 2017, we are part of Erasmus Student Network Germany. ESN Germany is the consolidation of the German local Erasmus student initiatives. In 33 sections our voluntary members take care of approximately 10.000 exchange students every year. In Europe there are local ESN sections at more than 430 higher education facilities in 40 countries. This makes us one of the largest student initiatives in Europe.
It is our mission to connect international students and local students here in Witten. International students may be here for their Erasmus semester, others from outside Europe are doing a semester abroad and some do their whole degree in Witten. Our aim is to make everyone feel welcome and integrating everyone. We want international visitors in Witten to leave with memories that will never be forgotten.
These activities can be divided into four different groups:
