As the Welsh capital and largest city, Cardiff is home to the Welsh Assembly Government, the Millennium Stadium and BBC Wales’ “Doctor Who” and “Sherlock” TV series, Cardiff is in a brilliant location to host the next National Platform. 


Why us? 

By hosting this event, ESN Cardiff is hoping to augment the respect of other ESN UK sections, and become a well-established member of the ESN UK family. Through hosting the National Platform, we hope strengthen our relationship even further with Cardiff University, with links through both the Guild of Societies and also the International Office. 


We wish to motivate all the sections to learn from each other, and prove that experience is not the only thing which is important within ESN, but that motivation, teamwork and hard work can prove equally fruitful. Hosting the National Platform is not just about what ESN Cardiff can gain as a section, but also about what we can give to the other ESN sections. 

How much? 

The maximum final price for all participants and guests who enrol by the deadline will be £42. 


Friday: Arrivals. Walking tour of the city of Cardiff by a member of the OC, dinner in a traditional pub, leading on to an ESN pub golf. 


Saturday: Plenaries during the day, lunch on the University campus. Dinner in a traditional pub, followed by drinks, followed by a club night at the Students’ Union night club with local Erasmus students. There will be time to change/freshen up back at the hostel. 


Sunday: Check out of hostel. There will be a room available in the University for storing luggage. Plenaries during the day, including lunch on the University campus. There will be facilities available for participants to wait until their transport home. 

The city of Cardiff is very compact, and we will be walking everywhere. (15 minute walk maximum, between the train station, plenary rooms, hostel and entertainment).


There will be more information to follow, after we are selected as the hosts for this wonderful weekend event. See you there, and vote wisely!
