ESN Split is a non-profit organization founded in 2012.

Aim of ESN Split is helping international students who choose Split as a place for their studies. Each semester we get around 200 students which a really big number for us and we’re glad to know that our lovely city attracts more students every semester.

ESN Split consists of approximately 50 students volunteers from different faculties of the University of Split.  We organise open call at the beginning of each semester but students are, of course, always free to contact us and join our ESN family. In case you’re interested to join ESN Split, you can contact us via Facebook, Instagram or send an email to

Both active and non-active members can be a part of something called The Buddy system.

Buddy system is a specific part of every Erasmus section. A Buddy is an ESN student volunteer that helps incoming Erasmus students prior to and during their Erasmus stay. They help out with paperwork, getting around or anything else Erasmus students might need. Every incoming Erasmus student has the right to apply for a Buddy. Upon students arrival to Split, they are introduced to the Campus, their buddies, and they are provided with all the necessary information regarding their stay here.

During their stay, Erasmus students are engaged in a plethora of activities organised by ESN Split that meets them with a historical background of Split centre, beautiful islands in the region and breathtaking coast and blue sea that is mentioned all around the world. Besides visiting islands, exploring the Mediterranean culture and national parks, they can be a part of events such as pub quizzes, MEet My Country, Language Tandem and other.

Social Inclusion team takes care of organizing charity events for both Erasmus people and locals (Date Auction, blood donation, dog-walking) cooperating with local associations like Zvono, MoST, Providnost, NO-KILL Animal Rescue Shelter, local Red Cross etc. Party team is in charge of the best-themed parties such as Anything But A Cup, Glow in the Dark Party and Slav Squat Party. With all mentioned, our main goal is to make Erasmus stay in Split unforgettable and life-changing.

Some of the projects we’ve been doing are Europska Cooltura - for the fourth year now we’ve been doing activities which promote the importance of international culture by organising various sport and cultural events. Besides that, we’ve written projects and got support from the City of Split, Čistoća Split and we get also many donations from the University of Split which finances additional education of our volunteers.
