ESN UK is one of the 42 member countries of ESN and acts as a link between the international level of ESN and the 21 local British sections. The National Board of ESN UK consists of seven voluntary positions - President, Vice President, National Representative, Treasurer, Communications Manager, Education and Mobility Officer, and National Events Manager - accompanied by a number of supporting positions and committies. ESN UK was registered as a charity with OSCR in Scotland in August 2021.
ESN UK hosts three National Assemblies per year, each attended by representatives from the UK's local sections. At the National Assemblies, section members meet their fellow ESNers from all over the UK, share best practices, receive ESN training, and vote on new policies and the new National Board.
In addition to National Platforms, ESN UK organises a number of National Trips every year, which all students in the UK can attend. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the last National Trip to Edinburgh took place in November 2019, but ESN UK is hopeful to run trips again in the 2021/22 academic year.
ESN UK is regularly represented at the various international meetings of ESN by the National Board and/or section representatives, as well as conferences and meetings in the UK.
