ESN Breda was founded in 2016 and has been growing as an international student organisation ever since. Our goal is to help international students integrate with the city of Breda and its local culture as best as possible. This is why we organise many types of activities ranging from parties to cultural experiences.
What makes us different is that we accept every student that wants to be a part of our community. This is usually uncommon with the other student associations that exist in the Breda where either only Dutch students can join or you have to be studying in a certain program to participate.
This year, ESN Breda is focussing on ensuring a high quality of balance between social and academic life for the students in our community. That means that our main focus will be on our values and missions which you can read more about below.
What makes our community strong and approachable is our group of volunteers. With their committees, they work together to make content and organise events which give other students in our community the chance to create unforgettable moments and experiences.
