Hello and welcome to our page!
We're ESN Edinburgh (previously known as International and Exchange Students Society). We aim to create a social community for all international and exchange students, support and encourage cultural exchange among students, enrich understanding and appreciation for Scotland and its culture.
Our society goals:
- Create a community for all international and exchange students.
- Support and encourage cultural exchange among students.
- Enrich understanding and appreciation for Scotland and its culture.
- Ensure a safe space for all students to foster a sense of belonging in Edinburgh.
We organize many fun events throughout the year – trips, coffee evenings, pub nights, dessert night – but also regular meetups and informative talks. We try to build a community where everyone feels at home and comfortable even in this new environment. Our trips to the Scottish Highlands and beyond are our most popular offerings and frequently sell out! With hundreds of students regularly involved, it’s a perfect way to meet new people and make the most of the incredible international community in Edinburgh.
*Please note that due to COVID19, our trips and activities will be modified. We will continue to monitor government and university advice for activities.
We've been around since 1995, ensuring a safe space for all students to belong to and supporting the needs of international students. We're THE group to follow on campus for the best global and worldly events!
If all of this sounds good and you want to get even more involved with us, why don't you sign up as a volunteer? Not only do you get the chance to meet other likeminded students from different, interesting backgrounds, you also get official recognition by the university's Edinburgh Award scheme and benefits for society-related events!
Last but not least, please do contact us if you have any questions, ideas to improve or want to collaborate! We're reachable by our email firstname.lastname@example.org or by the links below.
