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!

*Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, this year we will be selling ESN cards online and we will make sure you receive them to your address! Please get in touch via any of our social media to provide us with the details of the delivery or if there is any problem with your purchase.


What is the Exchange Buddy Scheme?

Are you an exchange student arriving in 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 will look great on your CV?

Well, the Exchange Buddy Scheme is here to help! We will pair you up with someone who we think you will 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, please sign up on the platform https://buddysystem.eu/en/

If you have any questions about the Buddy Scheme or about using the platform, e-mail us at esnbuddy19@gmail.com. 


Please note that if you are going to meet up with your Buddy face-to-face you have to follow all the Scottish government guidance and advice relating to COVID-19.
