Hello, dear international student! Are you ready to start this new journey and collect moments? 

The ESNcard is the membership card of the Erasmus Student Network.
It aims to support international students and trainees, giving them access to affordable opportunities during their period abroad.

The ESNcard allows you to:

  • Join all of our events at ESN Minho (both in Braga and Guimarães, including trips, cultural events, parties and sports);

  • Use all the discounts from our partners in the region (including surf classes, bars, housing, communication, transportation…);

  • Access to all the events and discounts in all of the sections of our network (+500 sections in over 42 countries in Europe_;

    The ESNcard is also accepted as a  valid student ID in many other businesses in Minho since ESN is an organization recognized by the European Union.The card is valid for one year, so you can freely use it after you go back home or while you are travelling across Europe.

    All of this for only 20€!
