Erasmus Love Stories 2.0

The Erasmus Student Network is celebrating Valentine’s Day in a special way this year. ❤️
We are organising an ERASMUS LOVE STORIES contest for all international students!

Share with us your Erasmus Love story and win amazing prizes from ESN partners ❤️


This contest’s goal is to show that students on exchange programmes, despite their short-term staying abroad, can create strong and long-lasting relations. They are not afraid to bond even if they know that they and their loved ones will soon be separated by a pandemic and vast distances, and they tend to create memories that carry with them forever. But during all these new relations and interactions they also realise how much they love their people back home. Love has so many aspects and on this Valentine's Day, we want to discover them all.
Whether you found the love of your life or your best friend forever during your Erasmus, share with us your story and win amazing prizes.
