ESN Card


The ESN Card is exclusively issued for exchange students by ESN International. The National and Local levels are offering different discounts with the card, like cheaper excursions, parties, travel offers etc. For us it acts as a proof that the student is here in exchange and therefore it ensures that only those benefit from our services.


Only exchange students (and students with a Swiss Government scholarship issued by CRUS) who study at the ETH, the University of Zurich, ZHDK or PHZH are entitled to buy the ESN card as its discounts are mostly enabled by the financial support of these institutions.
