Erasmus Student Network UNWE (ESN UNWE) is a non-profit organization, run by volunteers, that organizes events for and provides services to international students on Erasmus or Exchange in Sofia.
It was founded in 2011 by four enthusiastic students of University of National and World Economy, that wanted to provide the amazing Erasmus experience they had themselves to Sofia. In 2011 ESN UNWE became an official member of the Erasmus Student Network Bulgaria (ESN Bulgaria) and the international Erasmus Student Network .
ESN is the largest student association of Europe, with more that 500 sections in 37 countries. The network is constantly developing and expanding. ESN has around 14.500 active members that are in many sections supported by so called buddies mainly taking care of international students. Thus, ESN involves around 34.000 young people offering its services to around 190.000 international students every year.
The aim of ESN is to represent international students studying abroad, while making sure they get the most out of the life changing experience a stay abroad is.
