Welcome to the official website of the Erasmus Student Network Dortmund, a volunteer-based student organisation making your semester abroad in Dortmund an unforgettable experience!
ESN Dortmund aims to help, support and integrate exchange students during their time in Dortmund. Our goal is that the exchange students experience a wonderful time in Dortmund they will never forget. Moreover we serve as contact persons for exchange students and help them to settle in Germany.
We introduce ourselves and our semester program to the Erasmus students during the orientation weeks at TU Dortmund, FH Dortmund and the International School of Management. Making their start at the new university as easy as possible, we help the new students socialising with each other and getting to know Germany and German culture during various events in Dortmund. For example we organize museum visits, fun events like bowling nights and pub crawls or city trips to Berlin, Bonn, Aachen and other cities so that the exchange students can get to know other regions of Germany. Those trips are usually organized together with other ESN sections in order to create a perfect program.
Local students are welcome as well
Integrating local students from Dortmund into the ESN program is another job of ESN Dortmund. We want to help local students to prepare for their exchange and welcome back local students who freshly came back from their semester abroad. With the help of information days and talks, we try to call the local students' attention to our events and the possibility to get involved. In order to help local students to get in contact with exchange students, we organize international dinners, trips by bike, football tournaments and many other events.
Partners & Social Media
We cooperate with the International Office of the TU Dortmund to integrate exchange students from the very beginning. Our events are promoted with the help of Facebook, Instagram and handouts.
