What is an ESNCard?

The best discounts locally and abroad! See the best ones below - including the famous Ryanair discount that gets you 10% off flights and 20kg free luggage!

However, there's even MORE discounts you can get with the card! Learn about these at www.esncard.org!

How do I get ahold of an ESNCard?

You can either:

1) Buy them online on this page (see below) and then collect your card from the International Office during their opening hours (just make sure you take along your phone to show a proof of purchase!)*

2) Buy the ESNCard with cash at any of our events!

*If you would like an ESNcard but do not reside in Aberdeen, please firstly send us a message on Facebook/Instagram or via email ??

What is the Exchange Buddy Scheme?

Are you an exchange student just arriving to the Granite City and are in need of a little guidance in getting set-up here?
Or are you a full-time Aberdeen University student wanting to welcome new exchange students and have something that looks great on the CV?
Well, the Exchange Buddy Scheme is here to help! We'll pair you with someone who we think you'll get along with and throw social events to allow you to get to know each other better!
The buddy scheme can be whatever you make it - language exchange, academic help or friendship!
If you are interested in getting involved, e-mail us at esnbuddy19@gmail.com!
