Follow these steps and use the tools we created to organise your Erasmus in Schools visit.



Step 1: Partner Up

Contact your local ESN Section to host an Erasmus in Schools activity in your classroom. 


Register your school and get in touch with the nearest ESN Section. Once connected you can develop your activity on the portal






Step 2: Activity Setup

Define how the activity will take places; 

  • make sure all logistics are discussed beforehand: when and where will the activity take place? 

  • Which topic do you want to discuss during your class? 





Step 3: Find Students

Now we can start looking for students! ESN will spread the call through the international students' community and look for participants. 


Convince students to participate by showing stories of other students and using material from our communication pack. 


Step 4: Activity preparation

Involve the student in the preparation of the activity! Organise a briefing between the school, ESN section and student to make sure everyone knows what is happening.


Tool: Use our practical guideline to set up your activity, get inspired by the example activities you can find in the toolkit! 


Step 5: Go for it! 


It is D-Day: the Erasmus students visit the classroom! 


Stay present in the classroom but take a step back and allow the students to interact. 




Step 6:  Evaluate

Debrief the activity both in the classroom with the pupils as with the international student and ESN coordinator.
