How Do I Join ESN? It's Easy!
1. Digital Membership
ESN Uni Helsinki Online Membership
You will become a member of the association by purchasing the ESN Uni Helsinki membership card online at Kide.app. With the membership you will join the international ESN community in Helsinki and get free and discounted tickets to our events, trips, and parties!
The cost of the ESNcard and membership of ESN Uni Helsinki is 12€. Only the ESN Uni Helsinki membership is valid for ESN Uni Helsinki discounted or free events. ESNcards and membership of other sections are not valid for our events and the same discounts as our own members. This is because we use your membership fee to subsidize the events.
Feel free to check out our events to see what you can join! Students, trainees, and interns of any other university or applied sciences university are welcome to get our membership (Aalto, Haaga-Helia, Laurea, Metropolia, Hanken, etc.)
Remember to register your account on Kide.app with your Finnish university email! Other emails used may need up to 10 business days to be activated, which means you won't be able to register for events right away.
We are switching our memberships to KideApp!
Everyone who is a current member (2022-2023) and has purchased an ESNcard can convert their membership to KideApp!
2. Physical ESNcard
What will I need to get the physical card?
Do I have to activate my card on ESNcard.org?
No... but the ESNcard is the physical membership card of the Erasmus Student Network (ESN). It gives you access to all the services offered by ESN and all our partners. The aim of the ESNcard - or ESN membership - is to support international students and trainees and give them access to affordable opportunities during their period abroad.
3. You're part of our family now!
