Every year, ESN launches a survey that explores the current issues connected to academic and non-academic mobility. This is one of the biggest and most successful projects of ESN - in the last years more than 100.000 students responded to our online surveys. Many associations - student, teacher, academic, European, as well as various institutions collaborated with us in the project.
Through the gathered opinions of students, ESN gets a better insight in to the issues and is able to represent the students' real needs. ESN passes the results to the main stakeholders in higher education and mobility programmes: European Commission, National Agencies of Erasmus+ Programme, higher education institutions and all associations concerned with the topic of student mobility. We believe that our work fosters mobility and improves the quality of exchange for young people in Europe and beyond.
The ESNsurvey 2019 will study the topic of ACTIVE CITIZENSHIP. The promotional and dissemination period is from 4th of March 2019 to 30th of April 2019.

This edition covers the topics of Erasmus students and their sense of citizenship in political, civil and social actions. How changed are the lives of these students after their exchanges? What is the impact of Erasmus+ in students who through the programme have the opportunity to meet new cultures, new friends, live in an international environment? With the questionnaire we aim at understanding the difference between these students and those who never had the opportunity to participate in the Erasmus+ Programme. Our research is going to focus on the impact of the abroad experience in the participation of international students in society. Does going abroad make students more engaged at a political, civil, and social level? What are the particular aspects of active citizenship gained through the abroad experience? Does this have an impact on their opinion about the European Union, as the entity that finances the Erasmus+ Programme? And on their voting behaviour? How do these elements interact with each other?
Please let us know the responses to those questions through the ESNsurvey 2019. Thank you!
