Exchange students

Erasmus Student Network

Erasmus Student Network (ESN) is the biggest student association in Europe.

Erasmus Student Network Hungary exists to represent and support Erasmus and International societies (sections) in Higher Education Institutions around Hungary that welcome and support international exchange students coming to study in Hungary.

The main aim of ESN Hungary is to support international students with orientation and integration in Hungary, provide guidance and support to Erasmus society committees, encourage and promote the Erasmus programme to potential students from Hungary, and represent Hungary and its member universities at the international level of ESN.


What is ESN


Mentor System

When you are accepted as an Erasmus exchange student of the University of Miskolc, you are going to be paired with a local student, a mentor, guiding you through the first steps. When you are applying for the exchange programme, make sure you are adding an email account you are using often, because your mentor will try to connect you via email.
Mentors provide academic, social and cultural support to their mentees throughout the academic year by a regular follow-up. Guide you on the way to the campus, arranging residence permit, student card, opening a bank account and telecommunication services (if needed), signing the accommodation contract.
Therefore it should not come as a surprise that the mentors themselves aim to help you get the most out of your experience here, in this foreign land, which is home to them, to show you the way of life that you have to get used to for at least half a year, and to make sure that this time will be a memorable part of your life.

ESN Miskolc events

Autumn semester
Welcome Week
We’re organizing a Welcome Week for the international students in the first week of every semester when they arrive, from Monday till Friday. First day is often a team-building day with board games, and cooperative teamwork tasks. Second day there is a Quiz night, with Kahoot quizzes about Hungary, Europe. Third day is a sports day, where the students can compete with each other via football, basketball, volleyball, table tennis. Fourth day is a city tour in the centre of Miskolc guided by the local ESN Miskolc members, mentors. The sight-seeing tour is often combined with a photo contest based on the main attractions of the centre of Miskolc. The last, fifth day is an international dinner which takes place on the campus of the university. The exchange students prepare their national dishes, present it, so the students can taste and get to know more about different cultures and their cuisines.
Miskolc trip
The Miskolc Trip is basically a 2 day long event. The first day consists of a trip to the medieval Castle of Diósgyőr, followed by a dinner in a chosen restaurant in the city centre. Second day is a hiking day in Lillafüred, and lunch in one of the local restaurants. The way to Lillafüred is often taken with a forest train.
Tokaj trip
The Tokaj trip is a one day programme starting with visiting the Castle of Boldogkő, followed by a lunch in Tokaj and a local winery tour, where the students get knowledge about the famous hungarian wines, their making-process, and wine-culture.
