How to become a member of ESN Norway?
Step 1- Gather a team
For creating a section you first need a group of enthusiastic people who wish to work on the ESN idea offering services and taking care of international students at your university.
A good way to find interested people is by engaging your friends, placing an advertisement in the university newspaper or distributing flyers.
Another source of contacts is the administration at your university and especially the International Office and Student Union. They know the names of the outgoing former exchange students and can help you with recruiting members.
Step 2. Cooperation with your university
It is much more easier to work as a section in ESN, when you have the support from your university's International Relation Office.
Usually, they are willing to put you in contact with visiting international students, to help you with financing, office and place to host the activities.
Step 3. Principles of ESN
We would expect that the sections joining the ESN work in accordance with our official principles. Please have a look at these pages now and make sure, that you can accept the core of ESN. Please read the following:

Step 4. Help and support from your National Representative
The person who can help you in creating a new section is the National Representative of ESN Norway. S/he will give any needed advice, put you in contact with already existing sections and help you to become formally a member section of ESN. So, do not hesitate to contact your National Representative! You can do that by clicking here.
All new sections in Norway have to be approved on the National Platform, which is the meeting of all sections on the national level. This is also a reason for contacting the National Representative in advance!
