Erasmus is not only about friends, it’s a huge family composed of students, mentors, coordinators and ESN staff.

ESN Lithuania officially established under the name "Erasmus Studentų Tinklas ESN Lietuva" has around 13.500 active members and involves around 29.000 young people offering its services to around 180.000 international students every year.

 

Erasmus of Vilnius University

 

ESN staff are student willing to make everything in their power to offer a perfect experience in Lithuania. The main purpose of the organization is to help exchange students adapt in a new place and encourage internationality in Vilnius University.

The best program is the mentor system.  Volunteers, help students in their academical and practical integration. Every Erasmus student has a mentor who can offer his help and friendship. Ambre’s mentor Gabrielė Vaitkutė was such a precious help. She gave her all the essentials information about Vilnius (how to take the bus, where to buy a SIM card, where to do grocery shopping, where to go out,…) and also the essentials tricks to survive in the city. But more than that, they became good friends!
